#ProudToLove video celebrates SCOTUS decision on gay marriage
YouTube celebrated SCOTUS’s landmark decision Friday with a touching video promoting Google’s #ProudToLove campaign. The compilation shares years of coming out videos, gay weddings and overall support for the LGBT community. LGBT stars Ellen DeGeneres, Laverne Cox and Ellen Page tell their stories, and YouTube users are shown coming out to their friends and family.
Individuals express their struggles with coming out, followed by the support they received from loved ones after sharing the news (one mom says, “My son is not an issue. He is a person, just like you”). The package also includes clips from landmark rulings on the subject of gay marriage and President Barack Obama declares every single American deserves to be treated “equally in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of our society.” Grab a tissue.
