We are especially excited to help promote the film Limited Partnership.
Get out your handkerchiefs for this true story about marriage equality pioneers Richard Adams and Tony Sullivan, the first legally married same-sex couple in the United States. In 1975, when Australian Sullivan applied for a green card as the spouse of Filipino-American Adams, the INS responded, “You have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots.” Their subsequent lawsuit against the U.S. government was the first step in a march that continues today.
Join us for a screening of Limited Partnership at Harmony Gold on Sun 7/13 12:30pm.
