THANK YOU ALL!!
While the passionate debate over the legitimacy of Marriage Equality in the United States rages on, the LGBT community continues to fight for their slice of the American dream. Powered by media, religion and influential anti-gay organizations, the civil right of marriage continues to be held just out of reach for many LGBT citizens.
The Right to Love: An American Family chronicles one story of courage born out of the highly mediatized and controversial Prop 8 2008 election results in California. A Californian married gay couple and their two adopted children fight back against discrimination, ignorance and hate through home videos posted on their YouTube channel, Gay Family Values. As they pursue their American Dream, the opposing political, social and religious opinions that pervade society attempt to strip it from them.
Jaye Bird Productions is a family-owned film production company founded in 2008 by Cassie Jaye along with her mother, Nena Jaye, and sister Christina Clack. As a proven team, they are known for their fearless yet sensitive approach to highly polemic topics while maintaining a balanced hand.
With Cassie Jaye at the helm of her directorial debut, Jaye Bird Productions’ first film, Daddy I Do garnered much attention nationally achieving 6 festival awards including Best Documentary at Cannes Independent Film Festival 2010.
Their second feature, The Right to Love: An American Family, premiered February 4, 2012 at the historic Castro Theater in San Francisco, California. Cassie Jaye, along with her sister and mother, worked intensely on this project for three years. With no direct association with the LGBTQ community, they wanted to bring the “straight perspective” with Gay Family Values under the flag of civil rights.
