Freedom to Marry




Over the last four decades, the concept of same-sex marriage has gone from a “preposterous notion” to one of the most successful civil rights campaigns in modern history. But change did not arrive by happenstance. This victory was carefully planned and orchestrated over decades. The Freedom to Marry offers the untold, inside story of this historic movement. This is a riveting ride alongside Evan Wolfson and Mary Bonauto, the architect and the main litigator of the movement, and their key colleagues from earliest days of their journey to their final frenetic dash to the U.S. Supreme Court.
