A group of students in Manchester in the north of England have created eight short films to promote the Lesbian & Gay Foundation’s (LGF) Enough is Enough! Action Against Homophobia campaign. Now they’re asking you to vote for your favorite.

The two most popular videos will be used to promote the campaign for a year starting from 17 May, when the LGF will be joining people and organizations around the world for International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

The students, who are all aged between 16 and 19, go to the Manchester College and have spent six months researching and recording their efforts.

Each short film finds a different way to encourage viewers to take positive action against homophobia. GSN’s favorites include a funny, retro-themed video telling viewers not to go back in time and a side-by-side comparison of a straight and gay couple on dates.

Robert, one of the students who worked on the videos, said: ‘I really liked the idea of working on the Enough is Enough project. It was something that I felt very passionate about. I was able to tackle a very serious subject.

‘I suppose homophobia could be a tender subject but I like the fact that we all got behind it, we've have just gone “This isn't right, lets do something about it”.’

You can watch all eight videos below and vote for your favourite on Enough is Enough! Action Against Homophobia’s Facebook page.
