How Love Won: The Fight For Marriage Equality: “A brilliant and emotionally powerful documentary” about the moment that changed everything in the battle for same-sex marriage. Go behind the scenes and discover the secret psychological weapon Minnesota LGBT activists deployed in this “unwinnable” campaign that had failed in 30 other states. It's an inspiring story of going from sure defeat to winning more than anyone dared hope. Experience the pain and joy of the campaign that not only changed history, but changed the lives of activists in profound and unexpected ways.
