Marriage for All Families: Stories from Washington


Published on Oct 16, 2012 by NewLeftMedia

The third of our four-part series made in each of the states that have marriage equality votes this November, this short shares the experiences of same-sex couples who want to get married in Washington. They have the same challenges, responsibilities, and aspirations as any other couple, but they are strangers in the eyes of the law. That's why marriage equality is so important: it aligns personality reality with legal reality, as a simple matter of fairness.

The series is produced in association with The Four, a social media campaign to support marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington State. Learn more and get involved at TheFour.com.

Film produced by Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll.
Music by Timmy's Work.

update - It was announced today that on October 15th Bill and Melinda Gates donated $500,000 to Washington United for Marriage for its campaign to pass Ref74 which would uphold Washington's marriage equality law which brings the total amount raised for the campaign to almost $12 million. In the latest polls 57% of likely voters support the referendum despite the National Organization for Marriage pouring money into the state. Yesterday New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg a $250,000 matching donation to the campaign if the local organization could raise an equal amount.
