Seeking to overcome a broadcast blackout imposed by the US Supreme Court, a pair of Los Angeles filmmakers have undertaken the task of faithfully recreating the federal trial on California’s same-sex marriage ban for the internet – all 60-plus hours of it; every “um,” “yes, your honour” and “objection!”
A new campaign has been launched today, Holding Hands For Equality. Did you know that 78 countries still criminalise same sex relationships? This is a huge number in a world where we should be able to love who we want to love without borders.
Out of those 78, seven countries have the death penalty for same sex acts.
So please show your support for equality by posting up, on social media using #holdinghands, pictures of you holding hands with the one you love, whether you are gay, bi, straight or trans.
For more details about the cause, please log onto the HH4E website www.holdinghands4equality.org
The smallest change can start making a big difference. And YOU can be a part of the change.
