This film is appropriate for all ages.

This amazing documentary chronicles the making of an activist for Marriage Equality. Charlene Strong was thrust into the spotlight after the death of her partner, Kate.  After facing this loss and the heartless discrimination of hospital and funeral home staff, Charlene decided to take a stand.  Her dramatic congressional testimony is credited with passing Washington state's historic Domestic Partnership laws.  Her journey takes her across the country, finally meeting with President Obama and securing his commitment to equality for all LGBT Americans.

"...a powerful story that resonates with people."--Newsweek.com
 
"At the heart of the film is a love story."--Seattle Post-Intelligencer
 
The film's 60 minute run time should leave abundant time for discussion.  Nine U.S. states plus the District of Columbia now allow gay marriage: ME, MD, MA, CT, IA, VT, NH, NY, WA.
