CANCELLED: Bridegroom

A Reel Progress Screening and Discussion

Due to unforseen circumstances, this screening has been cancelled.

Winner of the Audience Award at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, Bridegroom is a documentary directed by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason that tells the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship — a relationship that was cut tragically short by a misstep off the side of a roof. The story of what happened after this accidental death– of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized– is poignant, enraging and opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality like no speech or lecture ever will.

Please join the Center for American Progress’ Reel Progress film series for the Washington, DC premiere of Bridegroom, followed by a brief panel discussion and audience Q&A.
