Director: Linda Bloodworth Thomason | Run time: 79 min. | USABRIDEGROOM tells the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship — a relationship that was cut tragically short. The story of what happened after this accidental death– of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized– is poignant, enraging and opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality. On May 7, 2012, the anniversary of Tom’s death Shane decided to make a video tribute to his partner entitled “It Could Happen To You.” This film, posted on YouTube, received over 3.4 million views and has been translated into over 20 different languages. The impact of Shane’s YouTube video and the raw nerve it touched, tells us this is an important story that needs to be told.
