Love Has No Labels: These Skeletons Kiss, Dance, and Defeat Stereotypes

Love Has No Labels: These Skeletons Kiss, Dance, and Defeat Stereotypes

On Valentine’s Day in LA, a confused crowd gathered in front of a stage where theatre-sized x-ray screen showed two skeletons kissing. Then the skeleton people walked around the side of the screen, revealing that they were two women. “Love has no gender,” the screen read behind them. Three skeletons danced behind the screen—two big, one little—and a family of two men and their son emerged. 

As more people hugged and danced behind the screen and then revealed themselves, the crowd saw clearly: love has no religion, no disability, and no race. The event served as a kick-off for the Ad Council’s year-long “Love Has No Label” campaign, promoting equality and asking people to recognize and reduce acts of discrimination. See for yourself:
