The Biography Channel tonight screens the 2006 documentary Same Sex America, the stories of seven gay and lesbian couples on their journey to the altar with a dramatic showdown at Massachusetts’ constitutional convention.
The film captures a defining chapter in gay and lesbian rights in the US.
Same Sex America is a compelling tapestry of interwoven stories set against the backdrop of what is an historic chapter in the history of civil rights in America. Filmmaker Henry Corra treats his subjects with the utmost respect, and the result is a subtle, richly layered film that inspires and entertains while taking the viewer on an unforgettable journey to the heart of the new American family.
It airs Monday at 8.30pm on Bio.
Update: Foxtel now advises bumped due to scheduling clash with the lovely Michael Buble at 9:30 (he’s a Winter Olympics brand of course). Will be rescheduled for 2010 but no date as yet. Apologies for any confusion. Hopefully Foxtel will improve scheduling amendments to Media better in 2010 so this can be avoided…
