Mormon Doc Wins GLAAD Award


Mormon Doc Wins GLAAD Award

16 May, 2011 By: Billy Gil

Wolfe Video release 8: The Mormon Proposition won Best Documentary at this year’s GLAAD Media Awards, which are given to outstanding gay and lesbian films.

The film by Reed Cowan, the writer-director and journalist and former Mormon missionary, explores the Mormon Church's involvement in California’s Proposition 8, which outlawed same-sex marriage in the state of California.

“This award belongs to the brave men and women who have fought for marriage equality for decades,” Cowan said, accepting the award. “And especially those who were courageous enough to tell their stories to the international audience the film continues to reach. GLAAD is about protecting and celebrating the stories of our community, and our team is honored to be a part of a proud GLAAD awards legacy.”

The film is available on DVD at retail, and through digital download channels.
