Description

The evening show sold out! A second show has been added.

Rich Weissman and J.D. Horn, through a donation from the Richard Norris Weissman Trust, invite you to be their guests at the Palm Springs premier showing of the highly acclaimed Freedom To Marry documentary, a full-length feature film by Eddie Rosenstein. The epic, nail-biting, untold story of how same-sex marriage became law of the land follows Evan Wolfson, the architect of the movement, and his key colleagues on this decades long battle, culminating in the dramatic fight at the U.S Supreme Court. More than the saga of one movement's history, the film is the inspiring tale of how regular people can actually win - and how activists can effectively change the minds and laws of the nation. 

And, Evan Wolfson, the founder and living legend behind marriage equality, will be speaking! Evan was the genius behind and head of the Freedom to Marry organization. He conceived of the concept while a law student at Harvard three plus decades ago, working on every step of the effort, state-by-state and nationally. Evan will be joined by other honored speakers: Kate Kendall (Executive Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights) who appears in the film, Misha Isaak (General Counsel to Oregon Governor Kate Brown) who litigated and won marriage equality for Oregon, and Geoff Kors (Palm Springs Councilmember) who served on the Freedom To Marry national board. And, Modern Men chorus will be singing.
