What If We Treated Straight Couples Like We Treat Gay Couples on Holiday?
This video flips the script...
Experiencing different cultures, seeing amazing sights, ending up in a club almost identical to the one in your hometown… travelling is amazing, isn’t it? But then again, we don’t all have the same experiences when trottin’ around the globe.
New research carried out by Virgin Holidays shows that only one in twenty LGBT+ people feel comfortable showing affection on holiday, while 50 percent of those who took part in the survey said they fear judgement while abroad.
And so Virgin have teamed up with ATTN to ask the question: What if straight couples were treated the way gay couples are on holiday?
From the receptionist who assumes the couple are on a business trip, to the waiter who asks them not to smooch in a restaurant - the video flips the script to highlight the very real discrimination so many people feel on a day-to-day basis, let alone when travelling.
