LA Screening: "For My Wife" Friday, May 29

May 26, 2009
If you're in Los Angeles on Friday, May 29th, you should definitely consider checking out the documentary, "For My Wife," featuring the compelling story of Charlene Strong and her fight for marriage equality.

Charlene Strong with late partner Kate Flemming

Strong lost her partner Kate Flemming after a tragic flooding incident in Seattle in late 2006, and was nearly barred from seeing Flemming in her last moments of life. Strong's heart wrenching testimony about the hospital ordeal helped prompt Washington State to pass domestic partnership protections for same-sex couples. You can read more about Charlene's story here. And here are the details on Friday's Los Angeles screening:
