Summary: People all around the world took part in the gay selfie project released by global gay social network Moovz.
This project was meant to show the faces of the global gay community, with people from different cultures, with different colors, appearance and races and that speaks different languages. From South to North America and from Europe to as far as Asia - people uploaded their pictures and agreed to be exposed in order to send a message to the world and prove how united is the global gay community.
This is probably the first time that gays from all around the world did something together to send a message that empowers their whole community.
Many gay influencers also took part in this project, such as Amanda Lepore, Davey Wavey, Chris Salvatore, Colby Melvin, Matthew Lush, Willam Belli and many other global and local gay leaders from different regions who are following this initiative that gathered the entire gay community into one place.
This is another proof how market leaders and influencers are aiming towards empowering the community.
"We're so happy with the results of bringing people together" says Liav Eliash, The CEO and Co-Founder of Moovz, "This video represents the need in the gay community to get people connected, and to show the world how strong and united we are. I'm grateful to see the engagement of users in our platform and I'm more than happy to see it growing and proud to be the platform that enables these kind of activities. Our mission is to connect gays from around the world and make them feel free to express themselves and feel good for being who they are. This video is one of several projects that are meant to prove the unity and show the power of being a part of a global community" Eliash continues.
Watching this emotional video you'll be able to feel the power of the community together with the difficulties it is experiencing.
It demonstrates how big is the gay community, and proves that being part of a global one, can make the individual much stronger, and provide anyone with the freedom to be themselves, be proud of who they are and express themselves freely.

The original rainbow flag, called the Freedom Flag, was devised by Gilbert Baker in 1978. The design has undergone several revisions since its debut with 8 colored stripes, and today the most common variant consists of 6 stripes: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.
