As controversy swirls around this issue worldwide, Why Thee Wed? offers surprising and diverse perspectives on what it means for gay and lesbian couples to walk down the aisle and to fight for the right to do so under the law.
Why Thee Wed? was produced as part of the Reel Diversity Competition for emerging filmmakers of colour.
