This Advert About Two Women Getting Ready For Dinner Actually Has A Powerful Message About Equality

A part of Indian culture rarely seen in media.

Posted on

Indian clothing company Anouk recently released an advert centered around a conversation between a lesbian couple.

In the advert, the couple are getting ready for a visit from one of the women’s parents.

The video ends with the women preparing to not "hide it anymore."

Homosexual acts are illegal in India. However, recently a marriage advert posted by a mother for her son, seeking a husband, went viral.

Anouk has released a series of videos challenging stereotypes, encouraging women to be bold and beautiful.

In one a single mother is the subject of gossip, in another, a woman rejects a creepy man pestering her at a bar.

People have been using the hashtag #AnoukBoldIsBeautiful to show their support for the campaign.
