In a time when LGBT families are debated and attacked in the media, courts and Congress, from school houses to state houses across the country, five young people give you a chance to walk in their shoes – to hear their own views on marriage, making change, and what it means to be a family. About the project: This 31-minute documentary film was directed by Jen Gilomen and produced by the COLAGE Youth Leadership and Action Program during a 10-month activism training program in San Francisco, CA. In My Shoes is an excellent tool for raising awareness and making the case for same-sex marriage in schools, community centers, churches, legislative offices and more. This film debuted on June 16, 2005 at a world premiere event in San Francisco and at the 2005 Frameline Film Festival, where it earned the Audience Award for Best Short.
