Celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month with Kerem Shalom! We will be screening “The Gay Marriage Thing,” written and produced by Kerem Shalom member Steph Higgins.

About the film:

Meet Lorre and Gayle, 30-something college sweethearts marking their 15th anniversary by planning their wedding in the first U.S. state to legalize same-sex marriage. Stephanie Higgins’ powerful documentary follows the couple through the chaos swirling around them, from pro- and anti-gay rallies to religious leaders and the chambers of the Massachusetts State House. “The Gay Marriage Thing” (2005, 47 minutes) captures what gets lost in most news reports: the human emotions behind the headlines. The film is captioned.
