“Kiss Cams” are a tradition of American sports. But they’re also known for featuring “traditional” notions of love: mainly showcasing straight, same-race relationships.
At the 2017 NFL Pro Bowl in Orlando, we partnered with the NFL to turn their Kiss Cam into the Love Cam. Instead of featuring traditional types of couples kissing on the big screen, the Love Cam showcased love in all its forms.
On Valentine’s Day, we released our film of the stunt online – causing millions to rethink their internal biases and notions of what love looks like in America. It had over 42 million combined views, over 1.5 million shares, and 550+ million earned media impressions.
