Music of the British gay band The XX has been used for an anti-gay campaign in Croatia.

Association In The Name of Family used the music of The XX when filming a clip as part of their campaign against gay marriage, probably not knowing or forgetting there are three gay and lesbian members of the band.

The conservative association has earned the right to a referendum on 1 December to vote that marriage is a union between a man and a woman after collected hundreds of thousands of signatures. Gay activists are strongly opposing the referendum, but In The Name Of Family are firmly going forward with its aims.

The association used the music of the band when filming a clip to support the YES vote. Confusion was raised after the news website Index reported about the absurd situation.

The clip has been removed in the meantime. However, the members of the group that played last year at Terraneo festival in Croatia have revealed to Croatian music news website they will soon decide whether to sue the campaign organisers.
