Scarlett Dennis, 7th Grader, Supports Gay Marriage In Awesome Animated Video

If there's one thing we love here at HuffPost Gay Voices, it's seeing the passion and talent of young activists in the making -- and this Los Angeles middle schooler certainly fits the bill.

In a video that appears to have been uploaded by her teacher, 7th grader Scarlett Dennis created an amazing animated short that perfectly encapsulates the love and resilience of same-sex couples in the face of adversity.

Dennis' one-minute stop-motion animated video illustrates the question on many of our minds: "Why is it in this country that a heterosexual couple who have just met can get married but a homosexual couple who have been in love for years cannot?"

Check out the video above. Bravo, Scarlett!
