One Wedding and...a Revolution

Reveals the inspiration, motivation and political challenges at San Francisco City Hall during the frantic days leading up to the first government-sanctioned same-sex marriage.

We are delighted to provide free streaming of One Wedding and a Revolution in conjunction with the historic Supreme Court rulings about Proposition 8 in California and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

The roots of Prop 8 date back to February 2004 when San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom decided to grant marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. GroundSpark was there when long-time lesbian activists Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, celebrating their 51st anniversary, became the first couple to tie the knot.

This 19-minute film reveals the inspiration, motivation and political challenges behind the mayor’s landmark decision. It has been used to support other straight politicians to do the right thing, has provided law students with the back story to one of today’s most complicated legal battles, and buoyed the determination of countless marriage equality activists.

Packed with humor, compassion and political grit, One Wedding and a Revolution has won numerous documentary awards at film festivals all over the world.
