Love Has No Labels

Shown at the beginning of Thursday’s ECS 110 class was a video titled “Love Has No Labels”, which included a crowd observing groups of two and three people embracing or dancing together. The twist came with the addition of an x-ray screen showing only the skeletons of the people that loved each other. When the people revealed themselves to the crowd, groups that are represented as the minority in a Western world view were shown. Within the video, the screen stated that Love Has No _____ including race, disability and gender. I really appreciated the video as less traditional families were shown with the truth that a family with two dads and son is no less of a family. Despite this, I hope for the day when our populous will not have to be reminded or introduced to the idea that love is not only defined as young, white, able bodied and hetero normative.
