Short Film: The Text
‘Coca-Cola’ enlists Tom Daley’s boyfriend Dustin Lance Black to direct this sweet short film about a straight teen who discovers his best friend is gay.
Black said: “‘The Text’ was perhaps the most personal for me to direct. As an artist, I feel I have a responsibility to share the stories of who LGBT people truly are in order to dispel any atmosphere of fear that might prevent LGBT people from sharing their lives openly.” He added, “For Coca-Cola to take a pro-diversity, pro-equality stance creates a lot of goodwill in the LGBT community.”
