Earlier this year, I wrote about a truly great ad about marriage equality in the UK, “Homecoming.”
The video PSA has over 800,000 views on YouTube, and (according to the Director, Mike Buonaiuto, it “inspired the likes of Richard Branson, Stephen Fry, Theresa May and even Prime Minister David Cameron, to get on board with the campaign.”
Now Buonaiuto, whose name means “good help,” is setting his sights on doing the same for same-sex parental rights in Europe. He has just launched an indiegogo campaign in which he is asking for just $1,000 in the next 85 days to help defray the costs of a new short film about same-sex parents and their (adopted) children’s lack of legal status in many parts of Europe.
Imagine if your parents weren’t legally recognised in most countries of the european union.
There is no overriding legal rights across Europe for families with adopted children of same-sex parents. Let’s change it with an emotional viral film campaign.
