Gay rights supporters lined the walls outside Dolce & Gabbana's flagship store in London on Thursday to protest the fashion designers' comments about same-sex parenting and IVF babies, the London Evening Standard reports:
Campaigners from The Out and Proud Diamond Group held placards which said "D&G Homophobia is not fashionable!" in the protest next to the shop in Bond Street.
They were joined by leading gay rights activist Peter Tatchell as they called for shoppers to boycott D &G after the duo claimed children conceived through IVF were "synthetic".
Other protest banners read "Dolce & Gabbana – put labels on clothes, not families" and "Boycott D&G over their disrespect for gay families".
