Through the Lens: The Case Against 8

6-5_case_against_8.jpg

Thursday, we continue our Through the Lens series with The Case Against 8. In 2008, thousands of same-sex couples married in California, and the backlash was swift. It came in the form of Prop 8, the statewide ballot that successfully defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The film chronicles the ensuing legal battle that resulted in the first federal recognition of gay marriage. Directors Ben Cotner and Ryan White join us to talk about that journey and the precedent it set.

The Friday, June 13th screening of The Case Against 8 is full. There will be a waiting list at the City Library which will open at 6:00 p.m. on the 13th. People who have RSVP'd for the film MUST be in their seat by 6:45 or they forfeit it.

The film premieres on HBO June 23. Details are available on their website
