Official Synopsis:

“HRC’s “On the Road to Equality” nationwide bus tour set out in Summer 2011 to spread the message of equality in by educating the American public and empowering lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to become advocates for themselves and their families. The 12 week tour traveled to 19 cities in 12 states and D.C., with particular emphasis on the Midwest and South where there are limited legal protections for LGBT people and living openly and honestly can be difficult. The tour came as a new nationwide poll from HRC found that Americans widely support LGBT equality issues but more work remains to be done.” (

Milkhaus traveled to cities large and small across the country to document this ambitious outreach campaign. ┬áThe footage was also purposed for an extended video that screened at the HRC’s annual dinner before President Obama took the stage to deliver an historic keynote speech supporting GLBT rights.
