Gay Dads (Us!) Featured in ACLU Voter Video

By Designerdaddy @DesignerDaddy

Our family is featured in a new spot for the ACLU! We were excited and honored to share our story with an organization we’ve long admired for their commitment to social justice. Along with Jon, Papa and I, the two-minute ACLU Voter video highlights several other families … and several examples of why it’s more important than ever to make our voices heard through voting.

Check it out…

Racial justice, travel bans, disability rights, reproductive freedom, immigration, LGBTQ rights — all of these issues have been through an upheaval under the Trump administration. And as mid-term elections loom across the country, they are in further danger .

However, these aren’t just hot topics to be debated on cable news or social media; there are people’s lives, livelihoods and families being threatened. Even if these issues don’t apply directly to you, they likely affect people you know. If nothing else, they affect your fellow citizens. Your voice and your vote are urgently needed.

To quote one of the other dads in the video:
“It’s affecting more people than you might even imagine. Even if you’re not convinced that this vote is going to change your life, know that for sure it’s going to affect so many other lives.”

Bonus Features

For kicks, here are a few “behind-the-scenes” shots from our day with the film crew. Perhaps some of these will show up in the Director’s Cut…

Without question, Jon was the star of the show.
