Being in the South, a lot of us Floridians have connections to Alabama. So let’s celebrate Patricia Todd, the only out Representative in the Alabama House of Representatives. She is smart and bawdy (in a “bless your heart” kind of way), and she took up the fight to bring her state out of the dark ages of LGBT discrimination. As we celebrate Pat, our hearts break for Kim and Cari, and Kinley and Autumn, as years of legal discrimination threatens to tear apart their families. The LGBT struggle in Alabama is a strong reminder of the legacy of the state’s dubious history in the civil rights movement, as the governor, the speaker of the house and Chief Justice Roy Moore (remember the Ten Commandments judge) pledge to defy federal court decisions overturning the Sanctity of Marriage Act in Alabama. This documentary by Lara Embry and Carolyn Sherer gets personal in the struggles of LGBT people in the deep south and is just another reminder that the struggle is long, far reaching – and absolutely personal.
