In a Heartbeat – Animated Short Film


This beautiful animated film will open your eyes to the struggles young LGBT people face when forming relationships: what will other people will think? Would I rather risk breaking my own heart than have other people say negative things about me?

Watch this short animated film and fall in love with being in love, regardless of gender.


I almost teared up while watching this video. Without words, it illustrates the decisions young LGBT people make when it comes to finding love; do you take the negative opinions of others or do you break your own heart to save yourself from rejection?
