Randi Reitan took it upon herself to show Target Corp. that gay and
pro-gay consumers will no longer be shopping in Target stores. Or at
least she hopes to start the trend through example.

In the following video Reitan purchases over $200 worth of merchandise — including items for her son, who is gay, and her grandchildren, who love and support him. She then returns the items and explains to the manager why they wouldn’t want the products, knowing they were purchased from a store that supports hate to the tune of a $150,000 donation to MN Porward, a political organization endorsing Minnesota’s antigay Republican candidate for governor, Tom Emmer.
