The Gay Marriage Thing

Stephanie Higgins has directed a wonderful documentary entitled The Gay Marriage Thing which looks at the debate with warmth and humor and a definitely pro-gay attitude. The film focuses on a lesbian couple who are preparing for their nuptials. Interspersed with this are comments from one pro-gay and one anti-gay clergyman, as well as interviews with gays who are marching for their marital rights and homophobes who are picketing against them. This is not only a worthwhile and entertaining film, but an excellent tool through which to stimulate discussion of this important and polarizing issue. I will be writing more about this excellent documentary in the near future in The New York Blade and my jatgab blog.
