Love is the reason we survive on this earth so there should be no space for judgments in love. Love is beyond race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. Love is just love. Here are some short films on YouTube to prove that #LoveisLove.
This short film, directed by Franklin Valiyaveettil and Apurva Kosambia and written by Franklin for the India Film Project 2018, was a 50 Hours Filmmaking Challenge, Asia’s largest filmmaking challenge in the Amateur Category made in a duration of 50 hours.
The short film follows the story of a girl who goes out exploring new people and through them love through an app (Tinder) and in the process discovers about herself and her preferences in love.
This movie gives the message that it is okay to experiment in love, go out exploring as many as possible so that in the end, you yourself know your heart the best and need nobodies help. The short film promotes homosexuality and shows that it is okay to love anyone cause love is just love, it has no gender, no race, or religion.
One of the deadliest mass shooting of America, the Orlando Nightclub Shooting in 2016 became one of the battle grounds to fight for the LGBT community that America will never forget. Although the shooting was not targeted towards the community and was due to terrorism on behalf of ISIS but it was still the deadliest violence against LGBT people in the US history. Hence, thinking of all the families and victims involved in the Orlando shooting and a tragedy that never should have happened, this short film is made to honor the lives lost by a YouTube channel Tay Edits.
The film celebrates people who proudly announce who they are and take pride in their choice of partner and somehow by coming out have made a positive impact on people.
The amount of violence that has been shown against the LGBT community is unimaginable and also unforgivable. The violence faced by them on streets by the public, The France Anti-Gay Marriage March, and The Orlando Nightclub Shooting are all examples o the violence they need to face for being who they are. NANROCKBABY, the YouTube channels video #Loveislove shows all these violence’s against the LGBT and the difficulties they need to go through to just come out of the closet and accept who they to the world. The fear that they need to face just to accept their identity can be tearful for them. The video promotes “All for love and love for all.” There are no words for that.
The brand Absolut, Vodka brand, collaborated with filmmaker Molly Schiot to promote the launch of their Colors bottle to show how that all love is equal the lesbian couple Amanda and Paige. Absolut helped Paige plan out her marriage proposal in a surprisingly wonderful way. Amanda who thought that Absolut was making a documentary about love in the LGBT community was surprised by the beautiful unexpected marriage proposal. For over thirty years, Absolut has supported people who express their true selves through art, love or creativity.
Allstate Corporation, the largest insurance providers in the United State, came in collaboration with the American singer/songwriter Eli Lieb in 2014 for the Allstate LGBT Campaign, Out Holding Hands. The short animated film featured Eli Lieb’s new single, “Safe In My Hands” a song written exclusively for Allstate’s LGBT. The film shows how being different can and is like being on display and that only when we find someone much like us or who understands that uniqueness do we become confident to face the world. It shares the idea that “Being visible should never leave you feeling vulnerable,” and that “Everyone deserves to be in good hands.” The video was posted by the official Eli Lieb channel on YouTube.
Ad Council, an American nonprofit organization that produces, distributes, and promotes public service announcements on behalf of various sponsors, created a “Love Has No Labels” short film that promoted love without any gender, race and religion. While the majority of Americans consider themselves unprejudiced, many people unintentionally make snap judgments about people based on what they see—whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges people to open our eyes to their bias and prejudice and work to stop it in themselves, friends, families, and colleagues.
Most Americans agree that all human beings should be treated respectfully and fairly. Yet most people in the US still report feeling discriminated against. For example, one in five LGBT people report feeling there is little or no acceptance of their community. Six in ten Latinos report that discrimination is a major problem and a majority of African Americans report that they are not satisfied with the way they are treated in society. The Diversity & Inclusion campaign encourages everyone to reconsider the biases that we don’t even know we have.

An animated short film by Beth David and Esteban Bravo follows the story of a closeted boy who runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams.
It shows how even under force the heart will always speak the truth and go where you are supposed to go. If the heart is put under too much pressure it might only break and cause harm to the body.
