Disabled People Get Passionate in This Sweet Film From the U.K.'s Scope

Charity Wants to 'End the Awkward" Around Disability

Editor's Pick

This touching film from U.K. disability charity Scope was born out of the statistic that only 7% of people have ever been on a date with, or asked out, a disabled person.

It features a set of couples passionately kissing to the soundtrack "Kiss My Name" by Antony and the Johnsons. At first they seem completely "normal" but as the film progresses we realize that one partner of each couple is disabled in some way. The film features real-life couples Ollie Hancock, who was born with the lower part of his right arm missing, and Jen Shersby; Diane Noella, who is visually impaired, and Anthony Pike; and Michael Buckley, who uses a wheelchair, and his wife Claire.

The film, created by Grey London and directed by Nabil, was ostensibly created to mark International Kissing Day (July 6 ) but is part of a longer term campaign by the charity titled "End the Awkward."
