BRIDEGROOM is a documentary directed by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason that tells the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship — a relationship that was cut tragically short by a misstep off the side of a roof. The story of what happened after this accidental death– of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized– is poignant, enraging and opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality like no speech or lecture ever will.
On May 7, 2012, the anniversary of Tom’s death, after a year of documenting his own grief, Shane decided to make a video tribute to his partner entitled “It Could Happen To You.” This film, posted on YouTube, received over 3.4 million views and has been translated into over 20 different languages. The impact of Shane’s YouTube video and the raw nerve it touched, tells us this is an important story that needs to be told.
With the incredible support from influential people like Brad and George Takei and Neil Patrick Harris, Bridegroom was successfully funded on July 19, 2012 by over 6,500 people on Kickstarter.com becoming the most funded documentary in the history of crowd funding, and released in the fall of 2013.

What would you do if the love of your life—whom you spent the last six years with day in and day out—suddenly died with no warning? If you were committed to each other and intended one day to legally marry, but those rights were taken away? If you had no legal rights to see your partner or get any information at the hospital as he was taking his final breath? Or, if you were forbidden to even attend his funeral for fear you would be shot by his parents? That is just a sampling of what Shane Bitney Crone endured when his beloved, Tom Bridegroom, accidentally fell off a roof while taking photographs over a year ago at the age of 29.
