Don’t kid yourself: This FCKH8 video is a t-shirt ad

When FCKH8 first started making waves online with its four-letter videos, I was intrigued. Hearing people say “fuck” is hardly shocking anymore, but the righteous directness of the approach was fresh.

These days, however, the organization is starting to feel not-so-fresh. In September the company, which is actually a for-profit t-shirt company, was accused of profiteering from the 2014 Ferguson unrest with its anti-racism t-shirts.

Now, they’re taking heat for this:

If you knew your words were hurtful, would you say them again?

Posted by Tom Megginson | 16-10-2014 17:30 | Category: Discrimination

If you knew your words were homophobic, would you say them again? Learn how to be an LGBT positive parent.

Full disclosure: I wrote these ads as a personal volunteer project, in partnership with my sister-in-law, Bonnie Robinson, at Ottawa’s YOW! Productions. We had been looking for a pro-bono job to do together, and Bonnie had been involved with the organization. She shot these two PSAs on an absolute shoestring, with volunteer actors and most people’s time donated. I’m sharing them here because as parents we really need to stop enabling a culture of casual homophobia.

The first PSA is for parents of LGBT children who haven’t come out yet. The quotes are based on actual surveys that Etc. did with LGBT youth, about things they had heard that had hurt them and the underlying message of seemingly-innocent comments:

Son admits he's straight in this video from Queer Lisboa.

In a family where homosexuality is the norm, the son comes out of the closet.
This spot is from Queer Lisboa, the Portuguese Film Festival dedicated exclusively to screening gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and transsexual themed films, a genre known as Queer Cinema.

Minorities unite with animated campaign ahead of EU elections

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 15-04-2014 14:20 | Category: Discrimination, Gender issues

#NoHateEP2014: Minorities unite with animated campaign ahead of EU elections.

This animated campaign explains the choice given to Emma, an EU voter, in the May elections. Emma faces an important choice between candidates who oppose her friends’ rights, or who care about both Emma and her community.
The campaign comes from ILGA-Europe (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans & Intersex Association) and The European Network Against Racism (ENAR).

Evelyne Paradis, ILGA-Europe: “This is the first time two organisations like ours unite at this level. We speak for over a thousand organisations who firmly believe that discriminating against one minority affects everyone negatively.”
“We’re telling voters from all walks of life that more equality and more justice are within reach, but to achieve that, they must vote in May.”

Many candidates for the European Parliament hold very strong views about diversity and LGBT rights. That is the reason for this campaign. That you make a conscious choice if you find equality important.

The campaign will be shared widely on social media in 12 languages in the run-up to the May elections. It contains a video and infographics.
The hashtag is #NoHateEP2014.

Queer Lisboa. Brave Heart comes out of the closet in Lisbon

The video for the yearly Queer Lisboa festival is always the highlight in LGBT campaigning. Also this year.
Brave Heart becomes Pride Heart with a legion of beautiful men. Pride comes into action.

You’ve Seen More Gay Movies Than You Think

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 25-09-2011 19:45 | Category: Culture, Gender issues

Have you ever wondered why there are closets in a movie?
Corny humor in these four videos from Queer Lisboa, the Lisbon gay and lesbian film festival. Too corny I think.

Last year they did a remake of a scene from Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs. This year they took four others, all about the theme ‘coming out of the closet’.
The festival took place from the 16th to the 24th September 2011.

Queer Lisboa is the sole Portuguese Film Festival dedicated exclusively to screening gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and transsexual themed films, a genre known as Queer Cinema.

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
