This February marks the 20-year anniversary of when, in 2004, former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom sparked a ground-breaking civil rights movement by issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Pursuit of Equality is the award-winning 2005 documentary film that provides a telling ‘fly-on-the wall’ view as this historic event unfolds.
Please join us in support as we celebrate this seminal U.S. historical moment!
By issuing same-sex marriage licenses in 2004, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom courageously uproots the status quo, attempts to change the way the United States of America looks at life, love, and marriage, and ignites what became our nation's next great civil right issue.
With near-limitless access to former Mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsom’s office, “Pursuit of Equality” is not only an inspirational and valuable behind-the-scenes chronicle which not only captured the heart of the marriage equality movement but helped put a face on our nations next great civil rights issue!
As the only film crew in the mayor’s chambers during the most crucial of times, Geoff Callan and Mike Shaw's extraordinary film provides a telling ‘fly-on-the wall’ view as this historic event unfolds.
