This is a PSA I made for my broadcasting class at school. My project is the only one that was not aired or make it onto our youtube channel. Guess why.
Now, really, I didn’t make this thinking I was going to get it on air without any trouble, I’m not that naive. But I did believe my teacher when she said that she would fight for any controversial PSA if it was made well enough.
So I worked hard with my partner for this project. We our worked my asses off, getting whatever actors we could, tediously working with lighting and editing, going through the entire list of STA approved songs, color correction and all.
And I wrote this all out, making sure that I wouldn’t step on any toes. I didn’t talk about religion or choice or marriage rights, because I knew what they would say. So I made this to address something that I feel any educator should care about. Do not treat them differently, do not call them freaks, do not bully them. I thought we were pretty strong with this.
But I miscalculated. I underestimated the school that had suspended protestors and merely warned their bullies, the school that went out of their way to pick an anti-gay bashing song, only to change the lyrics for their pop show. The school that practically forces prayer at any major or minor ceremony, and sees no line between church and state.
They didn’t even go to me. They merely waited until I, a graduating senior, couldn’t do anything to stop them, till I didn’t have anytime.
I was careful, so very careful, and I worked through class periods and lunches. But all that means nothing when someone has literally told you they don’t support this “kind of thinking”.
I just want people to see and judge for themselves whether or not this is truly inappropriate for school.
HEY DUDES EVERYONE WATCH THIS MY SISTER IS A BAMF AND THIS IS A REALLY GOOD VIDEO
dang that’s a shame this was a really nice PSA too.
