A cop receives the worst news he can imagine…his life partner, Alex, has been shot on duty. But Andrew’s nightmare is only beginning as he arrives at the hospital. Alex's family blames Andrew for their son’s fate. Barred from entry, refused information, cruelly denied the opportunity to be there for his partner, and the chance to say goodbye, the law is not on his side and Andrew must fight for his right to love. And so begins the Wil J. Jackson movie, “The Denied.”
In more than 30 states in the US you can lose your job, your home, and your right to care for loved ones just for being gay. “The Denied” looks at the pain and heartache a survivor of a tragic loss faced when his partner was killed in the line of duty. Actor/Director Wil J. Jackson joins us on July 11, 9PM EST to talk about this film and his work for equality.
