A trailer for an upcoming Sims expansion featured an adorable gay wedding – with a doggy bridesmaid.,EA released a trailer this week for Cats & Dogs, the upcoming expansion to popular life simulator The Sims 4.
The trailer then jumps forward to the same two pets as bridesmaids at a wedding, as their two owners tie the knot. The crowd cheers as the two men kiss, while a dog in a tuxedo is also seen barking. Players have been able to hold gay weddings on The Sims games for more than a decade, but it’s possibly the first time they have been prominent in the game’s own marketing materials.
The subtle moment has been praised by fans.
One wrote: “You showed a gay wedding. It’s such a small thing, but you have no idea how much it means to the LGBTQ community to be represented as part of everyday life in popular media. Thank you.”
