IKEA, the world's largest furniture retailer, included a gay couple in its latest ad campaign.

The interracial male gay couple appear laying on a sofa in a print ad for a cabinet. Next to them is a flag that reads “All homes are created equal.”

The ad is part of a broader theme about the American dream, which IKEA argues has become more diverse.

“The idea of asking where did the American dream go was not to show that it went away, but that people are living it every day in diverse ways,” Leslie Stone, who helped shape the campaign, told Adweek.

“There are so many different ways that Americans live – multigenerational, gay parents, etc. – that define the real portrait of the America that's really out there. If we'd put across 20 different living situations, they'd all be equally powerful,” Stone added.

According to Adweek, IKEA first included a gay couple in a 1994 television ad.
