EDIE & THEA: A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT
Members: $9/ Public: $13 Includes Reception
In Person: EDIE WINDSOR
It's the stuff of legend - woven into one of our deepest, most universally held desires
that of finding an all-encompassing, passionate love that will last a lifetime.
The story of Edie and Thea is a documentary about two soulmates whose love
begins with an instant magnetic attraction and lasts 42 years and counting. But
like the great love stories of literature and lore Tristan and Isolde, Romeo and
Juliet, Gertrude and Alice Edie and Thea's story is one of forbidden love. Shortly
after they meet in New York's West Village in the early 1960s, they become "engaged,"
though the idea of a civil marriage for gay and lesbian couples was unthinkable at
the time and would not come to pass for another four decades.
