As the weeks go by and we get closer and closer to April 13, 2013, we are working full speed ahead to add finishing touches to our conference, set up schedules, and… lip dubbing. As a promotional tool for the Life Gets Better Campaign, we are busy putting together a video to spread the word about our conference! While we are very excited to share it with all of you, the details will be kept secret until its debut date… Stay tuned!
In the meantime, while you wait for our video, here are our favorite LGBT video gems. Enjoy!
“The Gay Rights Movement”
In this short documentary by Ryan James Yezak, the decades-long history of the LGBT movement is shortened down to less than seven minutes. But don’t let the short length fool you: it is full of clips from the media, politics, and pop culture that is sure to teach you and move you.
“Gay Women Will Marry Your Boyfriends” and “Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends”
As a disclaimer: these videos are fairly stereotypical, but there are still some accuracies, and they are what make this pair of videos so hilarious. The makers take a very non-traditional spin on the pro-gay marriage argument.
“Zach Wahls Speak About Family”
This heart-warming video shows the son with two mothers speaking in front of the Iowa House of Representatives in support of gay marriage. The use of his charisma and firsthand experience results in a compelling and moving argument.
“You Can Play – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis”
OK, so this one is not viral – yet. Supposedly, a new project called the You Can Play Project is working to “erase homophobia in sports, music, and entertainment.” With the already-famous Macklemore a voice for the project, this project is working for a great cause. Spread the word.
We hope these videos will hold you over until our video goes viral! Stay tuned, and have a great rest of the week!
