for my wife...
This is a heartfelt documentary, starring Charlene Strong, who tells the story of how she was treated by hospital and funeral staff during the tragic loss of her wife. Anyone who has ever loved, (no matter gay or straight) will relate to the struggles she endured.
Through perseverance and passion, Charlene changes laws to include domestic partnership benefits in the state of Washington, by sharing her story. Her journey continues, as she becomes a representative of GLAAD, and travels America to advocate for same-sex partnership benefits and marriage equality.
I was moved, saddened, and enlightened by not only Charlene's story of love and dedication, but also by the path she has been led down to become an activist for moral justice. If not for her tragedy, the equality movement may not have progressed as it has. While watching a film of this magnitutude, you can't help but think... "what if that were me?"
