Hallmark Releases Gay Father's Day ECard

Just in time for Father's Day, Hallmark is honoring children with two dads with a special eCard.

Created by transgender artist Kylie Summer Wu, "I'll Take Two" depicts a young girl shopping for Father's Day gifts, selecting two of each item before introducing her two fathers. The clip concludes with both fathers and their daughter sharing a hug.

"The greatest dad in the world," the eCard reads. "I've got two!!"

You can view the full eCard, which was released with four other "Love Is..." designs in honor of LGBT Pride Month, here.

Hallmark sparked controversy during the 2013 holiday season when it released its "Holiday Sweater" ornament, emblazoned with the line, "Don we now our fun apparel." The traditional lyric from "Deck the Halls" is sung as "Don we now our gay apparel."

Hallmark officials later released a statement apologizing for the change: "We never intend to offend or make political statements with our products and in hindsight, we realize we shouldn't have changed the lyrics on the ornament."
