The moving video features a lesbian alien name Rita who struggles after her partner dies. She applies for Social Security benefits and just as it looks like she's going to get help, she's denied after telling the administrator her partner was a woman. It is happening now to lesbians and gays all over America.
The video is in the top 16 videos out of 750 for the award - a $10,000 prize which the Center would put towards fighting Social Security discrimination. Perhaps more importantly, winning earns a spot on YouTube's homepage which means Rita's story - our story - could reach millions of people.
