Today marks the two year anniversary of Tom Bridegroom's death. Last year, Shane Bitney Crone, Tom's boyfriend, released a powerful video sharing his grief with the world but also making a plea for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples who are prevented from getting married. The video received over 3.5 million views and was turned into a documentary. Today, Shane wrote a letter to Tom, voicing his love for him and telling him about the incredible year he's had, sharing their story and speaking out for equality.
Last week marked the festival premiere of Bridegroom, the long-awaited documentary recounting the love story of Shane Bitney Crone and his partner Tom Bridegroom. Former President Bill Clinton introduced the film at the premiere and, this past weekend, the documentary ended its Tribeca run by receiving the Heineken Audience Award.
