LittleQFilmFest: I Do

 

The little Queer Film Festival: www.littlequeerfilmfest.org
Festival Screening: I Do, Drama| 91 min|USA
Jointly presented with the American Civil Liberties Union

A romantic drama showing the emotional and heartbreaking reality of a gay couple that faces being torn apart because of inequality in America. This new feature length narrative indie film takes a look at the human cost of DOMA (Defense Of Marriage Act), the law that bars same sex couples full federal level rights in America.

A British gay man living in New York finds himself fighting for love, family and a green card. Because he cannot legally marry his partner and have it be nationally recognized, he faces deportation. Even though gay marriage is legal in a few States in the U.S, married same-sex couples unfortunately have no Federal level rights. That’s over 1300 rights, many of them dealing with heartbreaking, life changing issues like immigration, hospital visitation, social security benefits, pensions and taxes.
