Linda Bloodworth Thomason, the director
of Bridegroom, believes the film is winning hearts and minds
on the issue of marriage equality.
Bridegroom documents the lives
of Shane Bitney Crone and Tom Bridegroom, who met in 2005 and vowed
to marry one day, if it became legal.
While Shane's family completely
accepted the couple, Tom's family refused to accept that he was gay.
Two years ago, Tom died in a tragic
accident and Shane was threatened and banned from the funeral by
“Bridegroom is [a] really
great film to show people exactly what it is they have been
opposing,” Thomason (Designing Women) said Thursday on CBS'
The Talk. “I've never seen a social issue change so
quickly. There are millions of people ready to tip and this is the
love story that I think will tip them, because what you see is
there's no difference between gay love and love.” (The video is

Bridegroom is out on DVD now.
