Redbox's DVD rental kiosks will carry the documentary Bridegroom, about a gay man's struggle to obtain relationship rights after his partner died in an accident and their respective backgrounds growing up in conservative small-town America.
While Redbox has largely stopped offering documentaries at the machines, the company's president, Anne Saunders, said an exception would be made for Bridegroom, according to Greg in Hollywood. In addition, she said the goal was to get the documentary into all of Redbox's 44,000 kiosks by December 17, and every rental would yield a 5% donation to GLAAD, GLSEN, PFLAG, and Freedom to Marry.
