Same-sex marriage was legalized in the USA in 2015, but the fight for marriage equality started decades earlier. This is the epic and surprising story of marriage equality in America, through the eyes of the architects of this historic civil rights movement, such as Evan Wolfson and Mary Bonauto, and the individuals it has affected. A primer for social change and an inspirational tale of how devoted people can make a difference in our world.
