How do you convince a nation to support marriage equality? Linda Cullen and Vanessa Gildea's timely and emotional documentary is the story of how love and acceptance triumphed over fear and secrecy.
Ireland's campaign for same-sex marriage recognition, which culminated in the country's historic 2015 referendum win, was a long, sometimes fraught battle both behind the scenes and in public. After the decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1993, the LGBT community set itself a new goal: marriage equality. When Katherine Zappone and Ann Louise Gilligan - two "nice middle class ladies" - challenged the High Court to recognise their union, their determination inspired others to mobilise with new urgency.
It wasn't smooth sailing, however. There were disagreements within the movement itself, legal and political battles, church interference, and acrimonious public debates to contend with.
Discover how Ireland ultimately said Yes! to marriage equality in this timely and inspiring doco.
