Teaching diversity_ YouTube video Love has no labels

Teaching diversity is an interesting and at the same time difficult topic. How to start it? A nice starter into the topic is via the youtube video “Love has no labels”. Showing it to the students and let them enjoy the surprising moment when the skeletons pairs reveal themselves. The video could be embedded into the following pre-, while- and post-viewing activities:

Pre-viewing:
What do you associate with the title? Which labels is the title referring to?

While-viewing:
Take notes on the “labels” that are shown in the video.

Post-viewing:
a) Compare your previous assumptions on labels with the ones shown in the video and discuss them with your partner.

b) Imagine that the New York Times has invited to send in an article/a collage/a poem/a video on the topic “Love has no labels”. Create this “product”.
