This Is What Love Without Labels Looks Like

Source: trueactivist By Sophie McAdam Thought-provoking art with a strong message This campaign from Love Has No Labels is an inspiring and eye-opening demonstration of love, in all its forms. The group aims to break boundaries and encourage non-judgement, and this moving video, filmed Valentine‘s Day 2015, is a good start. llnl In a busy city, couples in various loving actions (kissing, hugging, holding hands) stand behind a screen, their skeletons projected to an audience watching the images from the street. We won’t ruin the surprise, but themes include ‘love has no gender’ and ‘love has no race’. The one that will probably have you reaching for the tissues is ‘love has no disability’, which involves the bond between two young girls. The aim of the project was to make people aware of their own expectations and prejudices, and this is a powerful (and moving) way of achieving that. Tell us what you think in the comments, and take a look at the website (which includes this quiz to find out if you have any subconscious bias yourself…) Love Has No Labels Mission Statement: “While the vast majority of Americans consider themselves unprejudiced, many of us unintentionally make snap judgments about people based on what we see—whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. This may be a significant reason many people in the U.S. report they feel discriminated against. “Subconscious prejudice—called “implicit bias”—has profound implications for how we view and interact with others who are different from us. It can hinder a person’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment, or get a fair trial, perpetuating disparities in American society. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues. Rethink your bias at lovehasnolabels.com.”

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
