520 |a This is a touching profile of five lesbian and gay couples from multicultural backgrounds who have made a life long commitment to each other by going through a marriage ceremony. Each couple tells their own story of how they met, why they decided to marry and how their family and friends responded. These funny, bittersweet and, at times, triumphant stories speak of the power of love. There are no parental pressures or societal advantages persuading these couples to wed. They do not share health insurance or retirement benefits, or file a joint tax return as conventional couples do. They are validating a commitment that lends joy and meaning to life, especially for one couple with AIDS. The power of this film is that it portrays in warm, non-threatening terms, a revolutionary act that questions the very foundations of family structure.
