Eva Longoria continues to fight for gay rights. At least for once imagine like that all of the straight and famous people kisses each other for LGBTT rights. Olivier Ciappa has an amazing photograph projects about the taking attention on gay right with famous people. He is an French photographer and film director. His project’s real name is “Les couples imaginaries” and all photos are taken by Olivier.
Not only Eva Longoria but also Lara Fabian, Denis Villenueve and Jean-Marc Vallee were included in this project. Olivier Ciappa takes pains with traveling all around the world to find participation in this projects.
Olivier Ciappa wrote that “A few years ago, gay marriage in France drew a totally unexpected negative backlash. Millions of people marched with banners saying frightening sentences like, ‘France needs babies, not homosexuals.’ I talked to a lot of these people to understand them. That’s how I realized that a homophobic person is often similar to a racist, often not very open-minded. The problem is that they have absolutely no knowledge of what a gay family is truly like. I heard some of them saying on TV the worst clichés, such as two gay men with babies would have sex orgies in front of their kids or would dress with feathers to bring their kids to school. To me, the unknown leads to fear and unfortunately, fear leads to worse fantasies.” Eva Longoria is one of the most attraction famous person in this project.
Oliver added “Currently, real couples and gay families are so rare in the media, movies, TV, or talk shows. There are more than before, but unfortunately, it is just a drop of water compared to the hundreds of heterosexual couples we see every day. So, I decided to take these photos myself and show what, in my eyes, a gay couple and gay family look like. Having these pictures everywhere, on building facades in a city and in the media, will hopefully make people see them. The more the uneducated see these pictures, the more it will be engraved in their memory and will slowly erase the fantasies they invented themselves from their lack of knowledge. I call this ‘educate the retina.”
