Thu 26 Jan 2017 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

LUSH are showing their support for the LGBTI communities this Valentine’s Day, with a queer couple fronting their campaign across Australia and New Zealand.   The campaign LUSH Loves features New Market staff member Darren with his partner Joel and their story will feature in all 42 New Zealand and Australian stores. A LUSH spokesperson says “As we have for past Valentine's Day campaigns, we will use any opportunity to share a broader and more realistic image of love, always ​featuring LUSH staff and real couples.” Darren says “Being in a window with someone that I love so much is quite amazing. This is something so close to us. We know how hard it is to be accepted so hopefully this touches people. It’s not just one person. There are such high suicide rates within the LGBTQI community. We are pretty happy that LUSH takes the time to support the community.”
