UrbanClap has announced the launch of its ‘LGBT’ campaign for the cause of the greater good of the community as well as the society. Known for its stance on social issues like women empowerment and education, UrbanClap strongly felt the need to come out in support of the LGBT community in India, promoting their right to love anyone they want – irrespective of Caste, Creed, Religion, or Gender. With this campaign, UrbanClap supports the right to love anyone you choose.
As part of this campaign, UrbanClap has tied up with a Delhi-based startup agency called Ufaan, which has worked on a number of social films in the past. Together, they have launched a short film titled ‘Show your Love with Pride’, which portrays a father’s struggle to accept his daughter’s relationship with another woman. With her supportive mother, the daughter proves to her father that her love is genuine, via a photoshoot organised by UrbanClap. The photos of his daughter makes him realize the dynamics of modern day relationships and reminds him of the barriers he had to counter in his interfaith marriage. This realization leads him to believe that love has no boundaries and finally accepts his daughter’s relationship.
Commenting on this empowering initiative, Abhiraj Bhal, Co-founder, UrbanClap said, “We at UrbanClap are a simple bunch of people. We believe that everyone should have the right to love whoever they want to as it's the most basic human right. We firmly stand with the LGBT community in India as they fight for their equal rights in the eyes of law, or society. Our past efforts with the NAZ foundation, and this film, are very small gestures towards furthering the cause of the LGBT community.”
The social film is an attempt to make people realize that love has no boundaries and should be accepted without judgment.
To further the impact of this campaign, UrbanClap is offering to sponsor five photoshoots across the country for any same sex couple who wish to opt for this service. They can easily reach out to the team at UrbanClap through its Facebook or Twitter channels. UrbanClap promises to maintain all confidentiality if that is what the participants wish for.
