Shane Bitney CroneAn amazing film is airing on Oprah Winfrey’s network tomorrow night. The documentary “Bridegroom” tells the story of a gay couple separated by a tragic death, and what happened afterward.

The Huffington Post reports:

Shane Bitney Crone, the subject and producer of the documentary “Bridegroom” premiering Sunday night on OWN, became an accidental activist for LGBT when the unthinkable happened: He lost the love of his life, Tom Bridegroom, in a tragic accident. The couple had been together for 6 years and shared a mortgage, a business and a pet — but without the legal protection of marriage, Crone could not stop what happened next. “I received a phone call from one of Tom’s relatives and she wanted to let me know that I was not welcome to attend his funeral — because if I do show up, his uncle and his father had planned an attack,” Crone says in the film.

We had the good fortune to meet Shane at the Portland Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, where Bridegroom was screened as the opening night film. He’s an amazing guy, and this is an amazing movie – encourage your friends and relatives to see it. It will change people’s minds about how they view same-sex relationships.
