Equinox Explores The Fundamentals Of LGBTQ Life In Stunning New Pride Video

The clip uses the alphabet to express "the color, variation and realness" of identity.

A new short film uses the alphabet and poignant testimony to break down the fundamentals of the LGBTQ community in a meaningful way. 

Produced by Equinox in collaboration with the LGBT Community Center, “LGBTQAlphabet: Six Letters Will Never Be Enough” asked participants to “share the words that most meaningfully define who they are as individuals” not just in the queer community, but also as “citizens of the world.” By their admission, A is for “ally,” B is for “bisexual” and C is for “coming out,” and so on. Equinox’s Executive Creative Director Elizabeth Nolan said in a press release that the film, which was directed by Jordan Bahat, aims to empower viewers to “find their own ways of expressing all the color, variation and realness inherent in one’s identity.”

“Equinox has always empowered the community to be proud and unapologetic about who they are, but this year, we wanted to make an even more meaningful contribution to a cultural dialogue that is being written before our eyes,” she added. 

What a colorful, moving reminder to find Pride no matter how you define (or don’t define) yourself and your life!
