The concession, posted in a video apology on the website of his family-owned pasta giant, came as the company tried to calm the boycott calls and criticism ignited last week when Barilla said he would not show gay families in company ads.
Dear Dr. Olson,
On September 19, 2013, The Georgetown Voice featured an article about LGBT+ life here at Georgetown University. The feature did a great job of contextualizing the experiences of queer Hoyas, but I was stopped in my tracks when I reached your statement.
