It's an out-of-this-world story about a down-to-earth lesbian
couple who got on their bicycles and rode 3,800
miles across America to rally support for same-sex
marriage. From San Francisco to New York City, Elisia and
Carrie Ross-Stone -- two married lesbian grandmothers (from
Mars Pennsylvania!) ride across mountain ranges, through
deserts and across prairies, as they struggle through the
mud-slinging of election year politics, hateful protests
and even death threats to show America that they're not
alien life forms!
Their Mission: to raise
awareness about Equal Civil Marriage rights...
Tired of all the regressive hate-mongering
and motivated by the threat of a federal anti-marriage amendment,
Carrie & Elisia set out to prove that they are not out
to destroy "traditional families" and civilization
as we know it! Using their own family as an example,
they meet face-to-face with politicians and regular folks
living in the heartland to show that their life is not so
different from the lives of other American families.
of the highlights (and lowlights) include: a warm greeting
from the mayor of Salt Lake City, Utah; an emotional protest
outside the office of Colorado Representative Marilyn Musgrave
(author of the Federal Marriage Amendment); a visit to Matthew
Shephard's Laramie, Wyoming; a counter-protest of Fred Phelps
in Topeka, Kansas; a fundmentalist christian death threat;
an emotional rememberance of Carrie's struggle with cancer;
a bike ride through Manhattan to end the ride before five
TV news crews.
You will witness first hand their courageous spirit and
determination. You will laugh with them and cry with them
as they deal with intense physical and emotional challenges.
These inspiring grandmothers have no traces of blue hair
just yet and are far from settled in their rocking chairs.
