I wish we lived in a world where is will not be news. But I think Nikon is doing the right and brave things by releasing this video as part of their I Am Generation Image campaign.
The movie features Kordale and Kaleb who went viral last year when showing them doing their daughters’ hair. It went viral in a good way but also in a bad way as homophobia raised its ugly head.
Kordale and Kaleb told huffpost that the photo and now the Nikon campaign changed their lives:
With our picture going viral and now this video of our life, we feel that our life has changed to the extent of how people may view us. We feel that there are a lot of people looking at us as an example within the LGBTQ community — which is an awesome thing. Being homosexual is not as taboo as it once was and it has become more acceptable in today’s time
Nikon’s I Am Generation Image is a project where Nikon send a D750 along with pro lenses and accessorizes traveling from one interesting story to another. So far the camera case has traveled to: a comedy due – Girls with Brown Hair (Becky Chicoine and Sam Reece); urban cyclist (Darren Jefferies); an advocate for the homeless (Rikki Mendias); tiny house homesteaders (The Berzins); a vegan chef (Mary Mattern) and of course Kordale and Kaleb:
We sent one Nikon D750 on a road trip through a generation. The purpose of this journey? To give seven people with something to say a better camera to say it with, and to show the incredible range of expression a single Nikon DSLR is capable of capturing. Look inside the case to see the camera, the NIKKOR lenses, and other essential gear they used to make their mark
