Courage Campaign Seeks LGBT Testimony Videos

Posted By on Tue, Jun 14, 2011 at 1:39 PM

Would you like to get married, but your state won't recognize the union of two men? Or do you wish your daughter's school-age peers would stop picking on her for being a lesbian? Do you have a fabulous coming out story?

Whatever the case, you probably have an LGBT-supportive story to tell. Doing so in a short two-minute video could land your story in a nationally-televised TV ad. The Courage Campaign is seeking video submissions of people telling their stories about being gay or loving someone who is for their "Testimony: Take a Stand" contest. Submissions will be accepted through 11:59 pm (PST) through Wednesday, June 15th.

Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black will select three winning videos, and then he'll fly to each location to shoot a longer video of the winner telling their story. That video will air in a series of TV ads for the Courage Campaign.
