“This uplifting and poignant documentary, shown in film festivals around the world, highlights a momentous, historical milestone when San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom engaged in ground-breaking civil disobedience as he allowed same-sex couples to marry at San Francisco City Hall.
With rousing speeches from beloved comic Margaret Cho and other marriage equality leaders and interviews with seven long-term, recently married couples, FREEDOM TO MARRY brings a joyful, personal face to same-sex marriage at the height of this burgeoning civil rights movement.”
- Los Angeles Outfest
Freedom To Marry aired nationally on PBS stations and has been widely used as an educational tool on the issue of marriage equality and has been purchased by many schools, colleges, universities, and libraries. This award-winning film has screened internationally in Paris, Barcelona, New Delhi, Brussels, Taipei (just to name a few cities around the world) and has been translated to Spanish, French, and Chinese!
The secret of this film's success is that it speaks to the heart of this international civil rights issue and educates viewers to how same-gender couples are affected by being treated as second-class citizens.
“An amazing, soul-opening film.”
