We first shared this beautiful PSA in March of 2015. Now, it’s the first PSA to win an Emmy Award.

“Love Has No Labels,” made by the Ad Council as part of a year-long campaign about implicit bias, reminds us about love’s power to cross any and all perceived boundaries.

“Most of us aren’t even conscious of our prejudice,” the campaign’s website explains. “That’s why it’s called implicit bias.”
