Scouts for Equality is releasing a series of videos as part of their overall strategy to end the BSA’s ban on gay members and adult leaders.

Last month, Shane Bitney-Crone‘s ”It Could Happen To You“ short film about the relationship of Shane and Tom Bridegroom, tore my heartstrings apart (watch it again after the jump). Whether you support marriage equality or have your head in the sand, everyone must see it. The following graphic lays out the details better than I could.
In the hope that other LGBT couples does not go through the same legal and financial issues, Shane started a Facebook page: Equal Love, Equal Rights. The short caught the attention of Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, one of the “FIB’s: Friends of Bill Clinton” and the creator of “Designing Women”. With over 2.7 million youtube views, a lot of publicity ,Thomason’s support, and your help: a documentary can be made.As Bitney-Croneexplains in last Wednesday’s (6/27) Huffington Post, this is a love story that is worth sharing. If they are able to raise $300,000 by July 19 through Kickstarter, it will happen. Pledge your support HERE.
