Citizen Change

Citizen Change reveals how a dedicated group of East Bay (San Francisco Bay Area) LGBT pioneers blazed the trail for marriage equality by inventing the domestic partnership and attaining its first-ever enactment into law in the city of Berkeley, CA in 1984. In relating their personal stories, these remarkable men and women take us back to the 1970’s and 1980’s, creating a vivid portrait of how a small, dedicated group tackled the seeming-impossible: the attainment of the world’s first law that affirmatively recognized same-sex relationships. In doing so, they changed the very language that is used to describe same-sex relationships and created a template that spread worldwide. Their accomplishment made possible today’s efforts to establish marriage equality. Their contribution is revealed in this stirring documentary.
