Great Big Story and P&G made this short film that highlights the battle for equal rights in workplaces in America. It shows us just how much a few brave people can achieve.

It follows the story of a group of employees at P&G who fought to have LGBT rights protected in the workplace. In the 1990s, open homophobia in offices was common and many bosses made it clear that they did not want to hire gay people. For some, this meant hiding a huge part of their life. At the time, a boss could fire someone just for being gay with no consequence at all. They could also choose to not hire someone purely for the fact that they were gay.
