Today was a lazy Sunday for me! I am done with all of my grad work and didn’t have any errands or housework to do. I started searching on Netflix for some new releases and found this documentary titled “Bridegroom”. Here is what the summary for Netflix had to say about it:
“Helmed by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, this illuminating documentary chronicles the story of Shane Bitney Crone, who finds himself shut out and deprived of the legal protections of marriage after his same-sex partner dies in a tragic accident”
I watched it this afternoon and was so touched by this story. People don’t get that we, meaning lesbians and gay men, want to be able to marry to have the same rights that all heterosexual married couples have. My heart broke for this young man who lost his partner.
