Taking a Seat to Make a Stand with ACLU Texas

In the past few months, we’ve been fortunate enough to work with amazing creatives who support worthy causes, like Secret’s “No Stress Test” supporting transgender women and Avocado and Coconut’s short films encouraging people to get involved in the global Women’s March movement. Most recently, our friends at GSD&M and five-time Academy Award-nominated director Richard Linklater teamed up to help the ACLU of Texas and Legacy Community Health spread a message of equality, and we’re honored to be a part of it.  

The film takes the viewer through the GSD&M bathrooms, shadowing a range of different people saying, “I pee with LGBT” and urging them to “take a seat to make a stand” against Texas’s Senate Bill 6, which would prohibit transgender people from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity. Featuring “Midtown Maxi” by Ron Lewis and “It’s a Good Life” by Sea of Cortez, the video takes a lighthearted approach to a serious issue, while aiming to glean support for the LGBT community and encourage opposition of the Bathroom Bill. Check out the full campaign below.
