How Love Won: The Fight for Marriage Equality in Minnesota is now available globally on the Seed & Spark streaming service. The award-winning film, which traces the unlikely victories for same-sex marriage supporters in Minnesota, was produced by Michael McIntee and The UpTake.
How Love Won is an inside look at how LGBTQ activists in Minnesota won over people on a very divisive issue: gay marriage. How Love Won has become the playbook for how to actually talk about tough political issues. At the core of the movie are conversations people had about gay marriage — conversations that enable understanding and disarm hate. The film documents how Minnesota was a historic tipping point in the fight for marriage equality.
How Love Won has received standing ovations from audiences and high praise from critics.
