Travel company, Expedia, has launched a new promotional video in which an elderly father travels across the US to attend his lesbian daughter’s wedding.

In the video, part of a campaign called ‘Find Yours’, the man expresses that he felt nervous to travel to the wedding, but it demonstrates that he overcame his negative feelings, and ends with the strap-line “Find your understanding”.

The man narrating the video, about his daughter Jill, and her new wife, Nicki, says:

“You always have great expectations for your children. My expectations of what Jill’s life was going to be included a husband.

“So when Nicki came to ask permission to marry our little girl, that startled me. I told her, this is not the dream I had for my daughter.

“Coming out to the wedding from back East, I had some real apprehensions about it. What’s this going to look like, two girls getting married?

“You have to make a decision. Are you going to have a daughter that you’re going to maintain a very wonderful relationship with for the rest of your life, or are you going to lose that child?”

Back in 2010, Expedia added an LGBT search filter to their hotel options in order to assist gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans people in finding welcoming and safe places to stay when planning holidays at home and abroad.
