The popular video about a lesbian alien is a finalist in YouTube's 4th Annual DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards.

What Kind of Planet are we On? is about a lesbian alien who is denied Social Security benefits after the death of her partner of 25 years.

This well-produced clip from Rock For Equality deeply exposes the inequities of Social Security benefits for same-sex couples, reports the Advocate

It is the only LGBT-themed video among the 16 finalists. 

"We see first-hand the devastating results of Social Security discrimination and its impact on the lives of the LGBT seniors we serve every day," Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center CEO Lorri L. Jean said in a statement.

"It's nothing short of outrageous that, having paid into the system fairly and equally-often throughout decades of hard work-LGBT people are denied the same benefits."

If it wins, the video-selected by popular vote- will be featured on YouTube's homepage where millions of people around the world would see it and learn about the unfair discrimination that affects America's same-sex couples. Voting ends on Wednesday, April 7.

Rock For Equality will be staging protests at Social Security offices in Los Angeles and Washington DC during tax week.
