A video about a lesbian alien who is denied Social Security benefits after the death of her partner of 25 years is a finalist in YouTube's fourth annual DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards.

If it wins, the video will be featured on YouTube's home page. It is the only LGBT-themed video among the 16 finalists.

We see firsthand 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."

The winners are decided by popular vote. Anyone with a YouTube account can vote between now and Wednesday, April 7. Click here for more information.
