The first of a four-part series made in each of the states that have marriage equality votes this November, this short shares the experiences of same-sex couples who want to get married in Maine.
They have the same challenges, responsibilities, and aspirations as any other couple--but they are strangers in the eyes of the law. That's why marriage equality is so important: it aligns personality reality with legal reality, as a simple matter of fairness.
The series is produced in association with The Four, a social media campaign to support marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington State. Learn more and get involved at http://TheFour.com.
Film produced by Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll.
Music by Timmy's Work.
Ralph Baldwin, Jonathan Lee, Ian Grady, Marc DiCenzo, Jon Groppe, Steven Gustavo Emmons, Ryan Davis, Richard Socarides, Brian Ellner, and Jett House.
We also made a film about Maine's unsuccessful 2009 effort to legalize same-sex marriage at the ballot box. Find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NApJ7V...
