Storyline

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 comprised of strange bedfellows, 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 private Californian married gay couple and their two adopted children fight back against discrimination, ignorance and hate through home videos posted on their You Tube channel called "Gay Family Values". As they pursue their American Dream, the opposing political, social and religious opinions that pervade society attempts to strip it from them. Written by Jaye Bird Productions

This film is a must see documentary!
23 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a documentary film about Jay and Bryan leffew; two gay couple who live in California and had adopted two children; Daniel and Selena. They lived a private life until after Prop 8 has passed in California and they started making Youtube videos to show the world that they are just a family like everyone else and that prop 8 is a unconstitutional, bigoted, and harmful proposition. It shows them as a loving family that they really are, it also shows people who are homophobic who spread hateful and fearful lies, trying to make gay people out to be some evil, diabolical monsters or some claptrap. There are parts in the film that touched a topic about bullying, suicide, acceptance, understanding of LGBT community, and more. I've laughed, cried, and I felt anger towards the homophobic liars like Maggie Gallagher. This is a film that I not only strongly recommend, but I strongly want everyone to see and understand the facts and reality, not the bigoted lies like National Organization for Marriage and other homophobic groups wants us to believe. I even had a great pleasure of meeting the Leffew Family in person. They are wonderful people and they are truly a family.
