ads: wine bar or sex dungeon?
Saw this ad for Veritas Wine Bar in today’s Express and I couldn’t help but wonder if it was intended for next month’s Pride publications. Or has come out of the closet finally reached the state of general cultural usage?
I remember growing up, a host on the local public television pledge drive said “Come on out, all you closet Whovians!” in an attempt to get more pledges. It was visibly not well received by his co-host. So I admit that their ad could refer to closet wine drinkers/lovers*, but I still think it’s much easier to arrive at the queer conclusion.
* Not alcoholics, one hopes.
