WORLD PREMIERE of “The Right to Love: An American Family”

Join us for the WORLD PREMIERE of the documentary film “The Right to Love: An American Family” on Monday, February 6th at the legendary Castro Theatre.

This will be the first public screening of this documentary, directed by multi-award winning documentarian and local Bay Area filmmaker, Cassie Jaye. The film follows Jay and Bryan Leffew, a legally married gay couple living in Santa Rosa, California, and their two adopted kids, Daniel and Selena. After Proposition 8 passed in 2008, the Leffew Family began posting their home videos on a YouTube channel called ‘Gay Family Values’ to show how normal and loving a gay family could be. As they pursue their American dream, the opposing political, social and religious opinions that pervade society attempt to strip it from them. Can a loving commitment last if everything surrounding them is trying to tear them apart?

The director, producers, and the Leffew Family and many others involved in the film will be in attendance!
