‘The Freedom to Marry’: Documentary Follows Landmark Fight for Marriage Equality — Watch

Celebrate LGBT Pride Month with Eddie Rosenstein's lauded documentary.

“The Freedom to Marry”

Eddie Rosenstein’s latest, “The Freedom to Marry” follows one of the greatest civil rights stories of our time as it chronicles the marriage equality movement throughout its ongoing campaign to win the right to same-sex marriage in the United States.

The film picks up with a number of key figures, including Evan Wolfson (known to many as the architect of the marriage movement) attorney Mary Bonauto, and other members of their team as they make their way through a decades-long battle. It all ends with a dramatic turn at the United States Supreme Court, capping off an inspiring and insightful look at one of history’s most important fights for justice.
