Thank goodness these guys have finally told us the story of Salvador Dali, which until now has only been available in every encyclopedia printed in the last 80 years, and 140,000 sites online and counting. Talk about boldly going...

A couple of thoughts on this and the other three ads. I think that the idea is good, but there seem to be a few weakness; for example by calling it Homosexual Biography you may well have stopped readers who are biased from reading the copy, so it won't have changed their mind.

I also agree with Billoughsby it seems to be an encyclopedia extract - the copy doesn't really reach a conclusion that persuades the reader of anything- soft conclusion mentioning the fact that he was successful and gay would demonstrate the the point you're trying to make (it would have written very gently).

I think, ad says there would be no difference if they were gay. Their success and biography would be same.
