This June will mark three years since the landmark case declaring marriage legal for same-sex couples in all 50 states. But LGBT Americans are facing increased discrimination. In the last year, 55% of people reported being discriminated against because of their gender identity or sexual orientation (an +11 point increase from the previous year), while about 80% of Americans mistakenly believe it’s illegal under federal law to fire, evict or refuse service to someone because they are LGBT. The reality is 31 states still allow these kinds of discrimination.

To raise awareness of the situation, agency CP+B created this “Beyond I Do” campaign for the Ad Council and the Gill Foundation. The work tells the stories of everyday Americans who face such discrimination, including this PSA which introduces us to Jami and Krista. In it, we meet a gay couple who couldn’t get a doctor to see their child solely because of their sexual orientation.

This spot--and two others in the campaign--were directed collectively by the CP+B creative team. Work was produced by Stink Studios, NY.
