“Pink Moon,” a short film following two straight teenagers who are forced to hide an unintended pregnancy in a society where heterosexuals are persecuted and abortion is forbidden, is now available online (and it’s totally free!)

The intriguing short from writer and director Sal Bardo stars Brandon Tyler Harris, a straight ally who has appeared in “The Big C,” “Smash” and “Law & Order: SVU,” Cole Johnston, and NBC News correspondent Thomas Roberts as himself.

“There’s an all-out assault on reproductive rights in this country, and the same thing is happening with LGBT rights,” Barado told Interview magazine. “Both of those issues are about personal freedom, and they’re fundamentally connected.” A feature-length version of the film, as well as a music video for “Great Escape,” an original song from the film featuring Cat Martino of synth-pop duo Stranger Cat, are both currently in the works.”
