Some of Australia's most high profile LGBTQ leaders have starred in a confronting video set to a cover version of George Michael's 'Freedom'.

Sydney City Counsellor Christine Forster, whose campaigning on the marriage equality postal survey has put her at odds with her brother, former PM Tony Abbott, stars as a widow grieving her partner, who is played by her real-life partner Virginia Edwards.

In a shocking scene Edwards is killed falling down the stairs in their home, and Forster is later confronted with a death certificate which fails to list her as spouse.

Former NRL star Ian Roberts plays the father of a young man who struggles after coming out to his judgmental parents.
