For so many people of the LGBT community, almost every part of their lives can feel like an excruciatingly difficult and tiring obstacle course.

It’s not easy to imagine this if you’ve never been the one on the other side’s of society’s scrutiny. But Inter-LGBT and agency TBWA\Paris sought to show the sheer strength one must have to crawl through (and come out from) the rejection and pain others can inflict on someone who may seem different to them. The spot below is a breathtaking capture of their day-to-day trials, from being bullied in school to being cast aside by friends and family.
