(DVD also includes Celebrating the Life of Del Martin)
On February 12, 2004, the mayor of San Francisco ordered city officials to allow lesbian and gay couples to get married. Pioneering activists Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, celebrating their 51st anniversary, had the privilege of being the first couple to tie the knot. One Wedding and a Revolution goes behind the scenes at the mayor's office during the frantic days leading up to February 12th, and into city hall with exclusive footage of this momentous historical event. Packed with humor, compassion, and political grit, this inspiring short documentary puts a human face on the fight for marriage equality --- of those who deserve their rights and those who have the political power to make change.
One Wedding and a Revolution has won numerous documentary awards at film festivals all over the world and the new re-released 2012 DVD includes our bonus film, Celebrating the Life of Del Martin, which shares the moving memorial service for this lifelong civil rights pioneer. Legendary lesbian civil rights pioneer Del Martin passed away in 2008 and to honor her incomparable contributions, San Francisco celebrated her life with a moving civic celebration in its City Hall grand rotunda. Phyllis Lyon, her partner for over 50 years, was, of course, in attendance, along with a who's who of city's pioneering community of LGBT rights' advocates.
