    You are invited to a very special screening of Freedom to Marry in Shepparton hosted by Australian Marriage Equality.

    The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Evan Wolfson, who was a key figure in securing marriage equality in the US and is featured in the film.

    Want to know a little more? The documentary follows the tense lead-up to the Supreme Court’s final decision and the main players involved: two lawyers (Evan Wolfson, the architect of the movement, and Mary Bonauto, a leading civil rights attorney) and two plaintiffs (April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse). It goes behind the scenes at the culmination of a decades-long fight and tracks the grassroots campaign for support.
