Same-Sex Marriage, Civil Unions, and Domestic Partnerships

This fight of equal right has been going on in the country since its conception. This is just another group’s struggle for being viewed as equal and as a norm.The documentary would answer the question why, why is it important for same sex couples to have equal civil rights as hetero sexual couples. I would interview a certain demographic most likely people from the ages 18-28 about their point of view on same sex marriage. Then go to individuals who feel strongly about the subject both pro and con. Try to get a gay rights activist I know. This topic seems to be accessible to me because I know a lot of people across the board with opinion on the topic be it for religious or political reasons. I want this documentary to help me under stand why it is an issue for couples of the same sex to have equal rights as a heterosexual couple.

    i would like to see how are you going to show the different perspectives in this story ,as well as the different point of views you will use to bring this story to life..

    This would be an interesting topic to cover, especially considering gay marriage has passed here. You certainly can use strong feelings and you have a community to reach out to, but who in particular would you interview that would make it powerful? like a politician against or maybe an extremist?

    I think the topic revolving around the recently passed law would help to narrow it down
