The Devote Campaign is an oral history project documenting the diverse people whose lives have been affected by LGBTQ inequality. Our goal is to invoke change now and preserve the lessons of the current manifestation of the civil rights movement for future generations.
Statistics show that those who personally know an LGBT person are far more likely to believe that we deserve equal rights. By filming real people sharing their experiences of struggle and sacrifice and making these segments accessible wherever there is Internet access, we are providing the most stubborn minds with the tools to change. For those who feel threatened and isolated because of who you are, we dedicate this project to you. Acceptance is real and growing every day.
If you or someone you know would like to share an inspiring story as part of this ongoing collection of video vignettes, please contact us!
