Unitarian Universalists of Wellesley to screen marriage equality documentary
November 5, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This past June marked the two-year anniversary of Obergefell vs. Hodges, the Supreme Court case which affirmed marriage equality as a nation-wide civil right. Summer film festivals marked the milestone by showing “The Freedom to Marry,” a documentary released in March. That film now comes to Wellesley, sponsored by the LGBTQ Interest Group of the Unitarian Universalists of Wellesley.
The film tells the inside story of the decades-long campaign to permit same-sex couples to marry. It follows Evan Wolfson, the architect of the movement, and Mary Bonauto, the main litigator, from the earliest days to the final dash to the Supreme Court.
