The newest spot from FCKH8.com spotlights that despite progress in so many other areas, laws across the country continue to deny gay people basic anti-discrimination protections on the job.
In the video, people from various walks of life – women, blacks, disabled people – each identify major civil rights milestones in America.
Each speaker represents a year when others like them were finally offered legal protection from discrimination in the U.S. – from African Americans becoming citizens in 1866, to people with disabilities getting access to public places through the Americans with Disabilities ACT in 1990. Each is wearing a T-shirt printed with the year they gained a fundamental right.
When the two gay men holding hands who are the video’s final subject are revealed, their T-shirts display question marks. “It’s 2015, and there is still no federal law protecting LGBT people against discrimination. What’s our year?” they plead.
