>“Family life is changing … Welcome to the new era.”

IKEA Family Live in Poland‘s 2009 publication presents 12 families, one of which is Ian and Steve. Steve is a stonemason, Ian is a chef. At the link, go to page 54 to begin the entry, which looks like this.

The Catholic Church in Poland was not happy, and urged members to send letters expressing their opposition.

IKEA responded with the following statement:
“Homosexuality is one of the essential elements of living in contemporary society.”

This picture is not from IKEA, but it does play off of the graphics used in the catalog. cute, huh?

This is not the first time IKEA has been attacked for being pro-equality. IKEA is headquartered in Sweden, however, and they don’t bend under pressure.

If only I liked their furniture. I might go for some of their kitchen stuff, though.
