And there are still many ignorant individuals out there who refuse to accept and support the LGBTQ+ community.

But with all this change, there are some being left behind.


And the outdated name of one ice cream brand has attracted a lot of attention online this week.

The ice cream in question?

The Golden Gaytime, of course.

"As a part of the LGBTQIA+ community I believe my sexual identity is owned by me, not a brand and that the outdated meaning no longer applies."

"Isn't it time for this double entendre to end?" the petition reads.

"In 2021, Gay's meaning primarily is related to sexuality. As a Gay man I have needed to fight to be myself, overcoming many things in my life, I am a proud Gay man."
