In 2011 Quebec filmmaker Dominic Poliquin made a spoof of a Heritage Minute ad that featured a gay Mountie proposing to his partner in the Armed Forces. Now he’s released another celebrating marriage equality, this time showing the story of a lesbian couple:
You may have seen an ad from the anti-gay Iona Institute, which came out about a month ago, called “The Case for Man/Woman Marriage”. It’s an ad that’s targeted at an Irish audience and argues that denying lesbians and gays the right to marry isn’t discrimination, because they say the gays can’t raise kids in the same way straight people can. If you haven’t seen that video, you can watch it on YouTube.
What I do want to show you is this hilarious rebuttal video from Tara Flynn, who calls out the ridiculous, outdated, heteronormative arguments made in the original video, as well as the fact that Iona is tied to the American National Organization for Marriage, which is actively promoting anti-marriage equality movements around Europe.
Another awesome and cute webseries from Comediva is Lesbros, the stories of lesbian Vickie and best friend/coworker straight guy Luis. The series does a good job of playing off stereotypes while also subverting them in a humourous way. In this episode, Vickie and Luis suggest some of the ultimate butch idols:
The series was created by Vickie Toro and Luis Navarro.
