Bridegroom Documentary

Equally Wed - Sunday, November 03, 2013

BRIDEGROOM is a documentary directed by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason that tells the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship — a relationship that was cut tragically short by a misstep off the side of a roof.  

 

The story of what happened after this accidental death– of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized– is poignant, enraging and opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality like no speech or lecture ever will.
  
Shane and Tom had been together for over 6 years, shared a mortgage, a business and a pet. They were a couple in many of their friend’s eyes but without the legal protection of marriage. Shane was ostracized by his partner’s family and not welcome to even attend the funeral.

Shane decided to make a video tribute to his partner entitled “It Could Happen To You. With over 3.4 million views on You Tube, the movie project was placed on Kickstarter.com and was successfully funded on July 19, 2012 by over 6,500 people.
 
This premiered on October 27th in the USA. It is not known as yet when it will appear in Australia but you can click on the image above to view the trailer. It looks like a truly moving story and one to put on your bucket list.
