Bully Pictures' Dustin Lance Black Combines Activism with Advertising
News: Bully Pictures' Dustin Lance Black Combines Activism with AdvertisingAcademy-award winner directs advertising projects with powerful social themes for Tylenol and Coca-Cola
Dustin Lance Black soared to international fame in 2009 when he won an Academy Award for his screenplay for the film Milk and inspired millions with his stirring acceptance speech invoking LGBT rights. He went on to become a leading spokesperson for the LGBT community through his play 8, about the fight against California’s anti-same-sex marriage proposition, and as one of the founding board members of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, whose efforts led to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision striking down the discriminatory proposition. That ruling is viewed as an important precursor to last month’s U.S. Supreme Court decision making same-sex marriage legal nationwide.
