Monday, we’re talking about a new documentary that chronicles the fight over same-sex marriage in Utah. The brash and unlikely activist Mark Lawrence was determined to overturn Utah’s gay marriage ban, even though many said there was no way the Mormon Church would let that happen. But Lawrence built a team that changed the story of Utah’s LGBT community, though he burned a lot of bridges along the way. Directors Holly Tuckett and Kendall Wilcox join us to talk about their film, Church & State.
