In 2009, there was an epic battle in the state of Maine to repeal/save marriage equality. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into that battle, and it was covered by filmmakers Joe Fox and James Nubile, and turned into documentary “Question One.” Chronicling events from the perspective of both sides of the question, there is a proposal before Landmark Theatres, an art house chain, for wide release.
You can help make that happen. John Aravosis at Americablog:
What’s most interesting about the documentary is that even though it’s “fair” – both sides get to tell their story – the anti-gay campaign does a bang-up job of indicting themselves by the end of the film. Their campaign manager, Mark Mutty (who works for the Catholic Diocese of Maine), makes it clear that they lied to the people of Maine in order to take away our civil rights. And the mastermind behind the lies was Frank Schubert, who did the same thing on Prop. 8 (won by telling voters the lie that we were coming after their children) – and, no doubt, will again. The admissions are damning. And that’s one good reason for anyone who is interested in the quest for marriage equality to see this film.
So here’s how you can help:
1. Email Landmark Theatres: Q1Landmark@gmail.com
All you need to do is send a quick email to Landmark, telling them you’d like them to show “Question One,” the documentary about the marriage equality battle in Maine, in their theaters, and that of course you’ll go the show and tell your friends about it.
…The duplicity of the anti-LGBT industry needs to be exposed. The true story of how dirty they are in the way they handle these anti-gay campaigns – a story told in their own words – needs to be seen by as many people as possible. And, getting “Question One” into Landmark’s theaters in 21 cities would be a major step in the right direction.
Well, given the battle here in NC, we’re seeing a lot of the duplicity of the anti-LGBT industrial complex — Frank Schubert has been commandeered to try to save the flailing Vote for Marriage NC campaign run by Tami Fitzgerald.
