The series of four films about the states facing marriage equality votes next month looks at Minnesota in its second installmentn released Tuesday.
The short documentary, titled Marriage for All Families: Stories from Minnesota, profiles three same-sex couples with children who live in the state. Minnesotans will consider a constitutional amendment to ban marriage equality on Election Day.
In the five-minute film, Justine and Theresa, Michael and Jamil, and Marika and Regina talk about their everyday experiences and why they want to be able to marry.
“Nothing about our situation is any different from anybody else,” says Jamil Cole-Smith about his life with his partner, Michael.
The film was released by New Left Media and TheFour.com, the social media campaign dedicated to increasing engagement in the four states with marriage equality on the ballot. A film about Maine was released last week, and films about Maryland and Washington will be released on the next consecutive Tuesdays.
