Narrated by Betty DeGeneres (Ellen’s mother), this thought-provoking documentary examines the controversial issue of gay marriage. Through interviews with 20 gay and lesbian couples, you’ll witness the obstacles they face as they attempt to earn the same marital rights, benefits and equal protection under the law that heterosexuals are entitled to. 57 min. Soundtrack: English.
Betty DeGeneres (Ellen’s Mom) narrates this timely and enormously powerful documentary about same-sex marriage (with a new 2012 introduction by Zach Wahls, author of “My Two Moms”). I Can’t Marry You explores same-sex marriage issues through the personal experiences of twenty gay and lesbian couples who have been in long-term relationships of 10-55+ years.
This inspiring, info-packed film will tell you everything you need to know about this vitally important topic. Included are pertinent facts and information from such top specialists as renowned civil rights attorney Evan Wolfson of Freedom to Marry (the leading national marriage equality organization) and John J. McNeill, author of “The Church and the Homosexual.” Until the right of civil marriage is extended to same-sex couples in the United States, gays and lesbians will continue to be denied over 1000 rights, benefits and equal protection under the law.
This powerful film makes an excellent gift for your parents or siblings! Or for anyone in your life who wants to learn more about the ongoing battle for marriage equality.
“A funny and moving film which truly gets to the heart of a hot topic.” –Express Gay News
“Would I show it to my parents, or my sister, or my straight friends? Absolutely. And that makes I Can’t Marry You an extremely helpful (and long-overdue) tool for all of us who care about equal marriage rights.” — Sarah Warn, AfterEllen.com
