Rather than sexualizing gay relationships, this campaign models caring, and highlights the importance of us taking care of each other. Featured throughout New York City, I Love My Boo directly challenges homophobia and encourages all who come across it to critically rethink our notion of love.

First of all, HOW AWESOME. Second of all, goddamn I hope “boo” is making a comeback as the word of choice for “romantic partner.” I am tired of people giving me this “aww, you cute” look when I use it.
BOO IS A PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE LABEL FOR A LOVER.
