"Projects like JustMarried are so important. 
These are vital stories, they are emotional, nurturing and essential
for us to move forward with an understanding of what people have gone through–

 so we can keep our history alive and share it with future generations.

the beauty of this series: the love stories

the magic: witnessing individuals who–taught since childhood to keep quiet
–come outand speak their truth to realize dignity in their own lives
and find acceptance from fellow Americans
the urgency:  Kris Perry and Sandy Stier, who beat California’s Prop 8 said it best:

We never expected, once we’d won, we might have to fight all over again.
But that seems to be the way when it comes to human rights.
When you think the war is won–think again.” 
Each narrative embodies the long fight for societal inclusion and its companion: dignity.

These stories are about love and courage– at a time when we may need them most.
It is a historical collection that  educates and inspires future generations to understand why people fought for our rights— and how easily those rights can be lost.

We believe the best way to fight is to remain defiantly visible and with our stories,
and stay in the hearts of everyday Americans.


With JustMarried We will be doing just that.
