The Vermont Premiere of The State of Marriage
Join Pride Center of Vermont for the Vermont premiere of an incredibly moving story that chronicles the grassroots movement that sparked a revolution resulting in marriage equality across the United States.

All proceeds benefit the Pride Center of Vermont and are tax deductible.

THE STATE OF MARRIAGE

The State of Marriage is an inspirational story of how Vermont attorneys Beth Robinson and Susan Murray formed Vermont Freedom to Marry, partnered with legal pioneer Mary Bonauto of Gay & Lesbian Advocates, and Defenders (GLAD), and led a determined group of activists in a two-decade long struggle for marriage equality in Vermont that built the foundation for the entire national movement. Despite fierce opposition, Vermont became the first state to grant same sex couples legal recognition through a groundbreaking 1999 State Supreme Court decision, Civil Unions in 2000, and in 2009 became the first state to legalize marriage equality by legislative vote.
