Same Skin - Produced



In early 2012, Freedom to Marry launched Freedom to Serve, Freedom to Marry, a multimedia campaign to show the harm the Defense of Marriage Act caused to married gay service members and their families. Over an eighteen month period, we told the stories of dozens of gay military families and produced 13 videos including Same Skin. The campaign helped catapult the issue into a major earned media story and President Obama named openly gay service members as one of the reasons he decided to publicly support the freedom to marry.
