‘Adam: Next Generation Robotics’ Fights Homophobia

This gay short, by UK film maker Mike Buonaiuto, aims to raise the awareness and importance of self-acceptance. Do you think he succeeded?

The film mocks up a futuristic advert for a customisable robot and uses the mechanical metaphor to say we should never seek to control, suppress or silence a person, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. We are not robots.

New’s reports of homophobic abuse and the devastating effects it has on families are becoming ever too common. It’s hoped the film will inspire young people struggling with accepting their sexuality due to bullying or fear to find confidence within themselves. We are not machines, we are human and we cannot be controlled, suppressed or silenced.
