Bridegroom is a powerful documentary (see the trailer below) follows the love and emotional journey of Shane Bitney Crone and Tom Bridegroom, two men who watched their love grow into a committed relationship only to have it end with the tragic death of Tom. But what came after Tom’s death is what makes this film both timely and monumental to the lives of many gay couples living throughout America.
“I received a phone call from one of Tom’s relatives, and she wanted to let me know that I wasn’t welcome to attend his funeral,” Crone says in the trailer above. “Because if I do show up, his uncle and his father had planned an attack.”
To document his grief, Crone made a video tribute to his partner on the anniversary of his death entitled, “It Could Happen to You.” The video went viral and has garnered over four million views. The documentary will break your heart and inspire you.
Bridegroom will premiere on OWN on October 27 and will be available on DVD on November 19, 2013. Launch the gallery to check out more pics of Adam attending the premiere.
