Thinking Out Loud for 4/10/09

by at 2:41 pm.

Tomorrow on TOL, we’ll be talking to Stephanie Higgins, the creator of the to-be-screened film The Gay Marriage Thing. The Gay Marriage Thing will be shown, courtesy of the Lowell Film Collaborative and the Christ Church United in Lowell, at the UCC at 180 E. Merrimack Street, on Wednesday, April 15 at 7pm, and Stephanie will be in attendance along with the film’s Executive Producer, Lorre Fritchy.

About the film:

From the protests outside the Massachusetts State House, to the churches of the Reverends Rich Wiesenbach and Carlton Smith, to the historic chambers echoing State Representative Kathi-Anne Reinstein’s perspective, THE GAY MARRIAGE THING captures how all of these voices swirl in the air around Gayle and Lorre as they approach May 17, 2004, the first date same-sex couples could file for marriage licenses in Massachusetts. While eavesdropping on the emotional and spiritual toll this issue has taken upon all parties, the story carries forth to the everyday angst and anticipation of Lorre and Gayle’s own wedding.

It promises to be a great interview so please join us, tomorrow at 10am on 91.5FM WUML-Lowell, or webcast it live. You can watch the trailer here:

    Grr! I’m so mad that’s on a Wednesday - I have a class! The film looks great, I hope there’s a good turnout.

    Just got the chance to watch this clip and interestingly Pastor Rich confirmed me when I was 13 and presided over my wedding ceremony. Cool.
