Last week, Americablog.com put up a call to action regarding a recent Ford Motor Company decision (under pressure from the American Family Association) to stop advertising in gay and lesbian periodicals. Unfortunately, Ford buckled to the pressure, and announced that they would stop advertising. The good folks at Americablog.com . really swung into action, and not only kept everyone informed of the situation as it developed, but also published a whole slew of e-mail addresses for Ford executives.

Apparently, a bunch of upset, disappointed, and angry folks wrote to Ford, and today Ford announced their intent to EXPAND advertising in gay and lesbian periodicals. Bravo to Ford for staying true to its roots, and bravo to Americablog.com for a job well done!
