I was so pleased to read that the documentary based on Shane Bitney Crone’s 2012 Youtube video, chronicling his relationship with his late fiance, was announced as the winner of Tribeca’s Heineken Audience Award for the Documentary last night at the wrap party in New York City.
If you have any questions as to why marriage equality for GLBT couples is time critical, please take the 11 minutes required to watch this video and hear first hand about how DOMA and Proposition 8 are harming people…devastating people’s lives. This is a story that is just too awful to comprehend.
UPDATE 2014/01/10: The story has been made into a full-length documentary now. Evidently, Linda Bloodworth (one of the producers of the TV hit, Designing Women, among other things) was so moved by the YouTube post that she contacted Crone in the hopes of getting the story out to more people. Brava, Linda!
