TAIMI has launched a new social media campaign to combat some of the stigma surrounding the act of ‘coming out’.
The LGBTQ+ social networking platform aims to provide a safe space for everyone from the community to interact, regardless of their sexuality or gender identity.
“TAIMI – Coming-Out-Free Community”, is a series of videos that imagines what would happen if a person had an object for every time they’d been outed, or had to come out to somebody.
Individual videos include somebody surrounded by thousands of pieces of confetti, and someone else with a large collection of rubber ducks.
Featuring members of the community from all walks of life, the videos were produced by the aptly-named creative agency, They, and have received millions of views online.
