Bridegroom’s Shane Bitney-Crone to attend StartOut fundraiser

LAST UPDATED // Tuesday, 06 May 2014 10:16 Written by // James Findlay

A special screening of the award-winning documentary Bridegroom will be held as a fundraiser for new non-profit organisation StartOut Australia on Thursday, May15.

StartOut focuses on improving mental health in people of Diverse Sexualities and Genders (DSG) by building programs that focus on social inclusion, freedom from discrimination and economic participation.

The documentary follows the intensely personal story surrounding the relationship of Shane Bitney-Crone and Tom Bridegroom, and the ongoing debate and struggle over the legal rights of same-sex couples.

Shane Bitney-Crone will also visit Australia and will be at the screening for a Q and A.

Bridegroom was winner of the GLAAD Award for Best Documentary and Audience Choice Award Best Documentary at MQFF this year.
