In the aftermath of the Orlando tragedy, a friend asked filmmaker Kai Stänicke if he would make his short film Golden available online.
The film, which gives a simple visualisation of what it feels like for many people to grow up same-sex attracted, has since been shared by many in the worldwide LGBTIQ community.
“If it can spread just a tiny bit of love in these devastating times, the film fulfilled its purpose,” Stänicke said on his Facebook post.
“Wherever you are and no matter how tough times are right now: You are never alone. You have a place in life and together we gonna make sure it’s a safe one.”
We think you’ll agree it’s well worth a couple of minutes of your time to have a look.
