Iconic graham cracker brand Honey Maid is once again speaking out for LGBT human rights in response to Indiana's new so-called "religious freedom" law, which sanctions religiously-motivated discrimination against LGBT people and other minority groups.

The company posted this image to Twitter yesterday:


If the #ThisIsWholesome hashtag looks familiar, that's because it's the campaign Honey Maid launched last year highlighting several different kinds of beautiful families, including including an interracial couple, a single dad, and a gay couple. The haters freaked out, of course, but instead of ignoring the bigoted backlash, Honey Maid doubled down with a new ad defending their decision to include and affirm the wholesomeness of LGBT families and beautifully turning the bigots' messages of hate into an expression of love.

Watch both, after the break.

Thanks to Honey Maid for so consistently affirming the lives, love, families, and human dignity of LGBT people.

h/t: Joe. My. God.
