Seventh Grader Pleas For Equal Rights In Creative Final Project Video

Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 1.20.55 PMFor her final activism-themed project, Los Angeles middle schooler Scarlett Dennis has created a breathtaking stop motion video in support of same-sex marriage.

“The Story of Larry and Gerald”, crafted entirely by the creative seventh grader, shows the resilience of same-sex couples in the face of resistance and asks one of the most poignant questions on everyone’s mind: “Why is it in this country that a heterosexual couple who have just met can get married but a homosexual couple who have been in love for years cannot?”

The video was uploaded to YouTube by Scarlett’s teacher:

I teach 7th grade in Los Angeles. We have just finished our semester in Health and it has culminated in Activism Projects in which the students pick a cause they care about that we have covered in class and make a creative project to inspire others to think differently and more progressively about our world. Enjoy!

Great work, Scarlett!

      What an awesome person. Develop those skills Scarlett because every voice counts. When you get older, you will be a great help in the fight for equality.
