Family Equality Council connects, supports, and represents the three million parents who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender in this country and their six million children.
Founded in 1979, Family Equality’s mission is to advance legal and lived equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) families, and for those who wish to form them, through building community, changing hearts and minds, and driving policy change.
We envision a future where all LGBTQ+ families, regardless of creation or composition, live in communities that recognize, respect, protect, and value them. We envision a world in which everyone has the right and should have the opportunity to form and sustain a loving family, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, religion, national origin, geography, socioeconomic status, disability, or the intersection of those characteristics. Finally, we envision systems of service and support that are free of discrimination and that maximize opportunities for youth needing permanency and LGBTQ+ adults seeking family formation.
Family Equality is a remote workplace, with employees distributed across the country. As such, the Video Producer and Storyteller may work remotely from their home office, so long as their location affords reliable phone service and high-speed internet access.
Family Equality has an immediate opening for a full-time video producer to oversee all video content production and lead the organization’s storytelling work. Sharing the stories of LGBTQ+ families, and of LGBTQ+ people on their paths to parenthood, is a critically important part of our work to advance lived and legal equality for our community, and the ideal candidate has a passion for video production and an understanding of the power of video content to engage audiences in Family Equality’s work.
Reporting to the Chief Communications Officer, the Video Producer and Storyteller is responsible for the production of all video content at Family Equality, including interview/documentary-style storytelling videos, rapid-response advocacy videos, marketing videos, animations, and educational videos. The ideal candidate has excellent storytelling skills, advanced technical skills, and is comfortable building trust to conduct interviews about sensitive topics.
The Video Producer and Storyteller will also develop and manage an organization-wide story bank containing story leads, submissions and content. The successful candidate will have a strong familiarity with the issues facing LGBTQ+ families and prospective LGBTQ+ parents, and a commitment to ensuring Family Equality’s video and storytelling content reaches as diverse an audience as possible.
All candidates must have a “can do” attitude, enjoy a fast-paced environment, and be highly organized without losing sight of larger objectives.
