The Gaily News: Censored billboard for LGBT dating site goes up in Pinellas County

Billboards advertising a new gay and lesbian dating website have been banned in several locations across the country, including a spot in Pinellas County. Censored versions have gone up in their place.

As prepared for the launch of the LGBT versions of its site, it decided to come up with a playful way of not only advertising its services, but also supporting marriage equality. But Clear Channel Communications refused the use of look-alikes of various political figures in the billboards. Initially, Clearwater was mistakenly identified as the entity banning the billboards, causing a PR headache for the city.
