Instinct names Shane Bitney Crone a Leading Man of 2012

Instinct Magazine has included Spirit Day Ambassador Shane Bitney Crone in its list of Leading Men of 2012! Each year, Instinct dedicates its November issue to a collection of diverse gentlemen "of character, of conviction," and from all walks of life, whose passion and drive leads them despite daily struggles as members of the LGBT community.

After the tragic death of his partner, Shane posted this video online about the harms of marriage inequality and family rejection. Over 3 million people have now heard his story, which will be turned into a full-length documentary entitled BRIDEGROOM. This project became the highest funded film in the history of Kickstarter.com.

Be sure to pick up your copy of Instinct's November issue to read more about Shane and to find out who else made the list.
