2011: NOH8: Is It Real Now?

A music video of sorts, this compilation, called NOH8: Is It Real Now?, considers the current American status of gay marriage in 2011, as well as acceptance in general for the LGBT community. Relevant and meaningful, nearly every clip and image shown displays key figures and historical events in the timeline for progression of equal rights.

Coincidentally, less than one week following the completion of this project was the end of America’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy.
