Celebrate 10 years of Utah's Marriage Equality Act with a free film screening of “Church & State”
Free In-Person Event: "Church & State" is the improbable story of a brash, inexperienced gay activist and a tiny Salt Lake City law firm that joined forces to topple Utah’s gay marriage ban.
Utah Film Center is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Utah’s Marriage Equality Act with a free community film screening of the documentary Church & State, on Wednesday, December 20th at 7pm at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake.
Church & State is the improbable story of a brash, inexperienced gay activist and a tiny Salt Lake City law firm that joins forces to topple Utah’s gay marriage ban. The film’s ride on the bumpy road to equality in Utah offers a glimpse at the Mormon church’s influence in state politics and the squabbles inside the gay community that nearly derailed a chance to make history.
Church & State is a story of triumph, setback and a little-known lawsuit that should have failed, but instead paved the way for a U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized gay unions nationwide.
Following the film Doug Fabrizio will host a post-film conversation with Church & State film director Holly Tuckett.
