We’re not going to lie: This video had our eyes watering at the immediate sound of violins and the stunning pictures put together by Shane Crone in his “It Could Happen To You.” The clip captures a beautiful relationship between Crone and his partner Tom Bridegroom, but makes a terrible turn when we soon learn about Bridegroom’s untimely death. If losing a loved one isn’t hard enough, Bridegrooms parents (who were admittedly against homosexuality) destroys what closure Crone has left by uninviting him to Bridegroom’s funeral, taking all belongings that belonged to their song and eliminating him from Crone’s life all together –all because there are no legal rights for same sex relationships.
The video leads us down a heartbreaking, unsettling reminder of why marriage equality and human rights are a struggle worth fighting for.
