Adweek’s Doug Zanger and Mary Emily O’Hara from D&I TBD have spent months discovering our first Pride Stars honorees, the agency creatives and culture leaders pushing LGBTQ visibility forward, and they’re taking over this week’s episode of Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad to talk about the inaugural list.

Mary talks to Pride Star Asad Dhunna from The Unmistakables in the U.K., while Zanger speaks with Lincoln Stephens of The Marcus Graham Project about the dialogue we’re seeing now in the U.S.

They also look at why racially insensitive brands such as Aunt Jemima are finally being retired.
