I Can't Marry You
I Can't Marry You, a film about same-sex marriage, is narrated by Betty DeGeneres, the mother of comedienne and talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres. This documentary is an educational film that explores the real life stories of twenty long term (10-55 years) gay and lesbian couples and reveals the obstacles they encounter due to not being able to marry in the U.S.. Included in the film are pertinent facts and information from the specialists on this issue such as renowned civil rights attorney, Evan Wolfson, of The Freedom To Marry Organizations, and John J. McNeill author of The Church and the Homosexual.
Until the right of civil marriage is extended to same-sex couples in the United States, gays and lesbians will be denied over 1,000 rights, benefits and equal protection under law to which heterosexual couples are entitled.
I Can't Marry You is an important expose covering a history changing event.
