Love is Welcome Here: Our #HostWithPride Film
2016 Webby Award Winner for Online Film & Video Long Form.
I worked with our Airbnb Production Team and Even/Odd to create this short film which later became part of the Airbnb #HostWithPride Campaign. This film was inspired by my wife and I, as we planned our honeymoon as an LGBTQ couple.
At the time this film was shot in 2015, same sex marriage was illegal in my wife's home state of Louisiana where we planned to have an unofficial ceremony, followed by an official ceremony in California. By the time the film launched in June 26, 2015, the same sex marriage ban was declared unconstitutional. We altered our wedding plans and only had to have one ceremony, and we now have a marriage license issued from the state of Louisiana.
