Pride Month Champions of Change Video Challenge
In honor of Pride Month, the White House is launching an initiative called “LGBT Pride Month Champions of Change Video Challenge” to explore “the stories of unsung heroes and local leaders who are leading our march towards a more perfect union.”
First of all, how awesome is it that the White House is actually asking LGBTQ individuals to submit videos about their experiences and perspectives? I think it’s pretty awesome. While this obviously won’t be changing any laws, it does invite LGBTQ people into an arena which we have historically been excluded from and offers an amp for our voices where previously our words could not be heard.
If you or someone you know has been an everyday hero of sorts to the LGBTQ community, consider making a 3 minute video and submitting it to the White House. Submissions are due by May 3rd after which semi-finalists will be chosen and the public will help identify finalists who will be featured as “Champions of Change” at a White House event.
If you think you might be able to make an awesome video about coming out, unsung heroes, identity, or another topic that fits within the 7 categories listed on the site, give it a go and who knows! You may end up at the White House as a Champion of Change.
