What do you get when you fall in love? Inlaws & Outlaws cleverly weaves together the true stories of couples and singles— both gay and straight — and all into a collective narrative that is as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.
At the top of the film, you meet real people one on one. You don’t know who’s gay or straight or who’s with whom. As their stories unfold and stereotypes fall by the wayside, you won’t care because you’ll be rooting for everybody. With candor, good humor, great music and real heart, Inlaws & Outlaws gets past all the rhetoric to explore what we all have in common.
We love. We lose. We all want to belong. And we’re all making this up as we go along.
“This is a very special film about love and we’re going to have a fantastic time supporting a great cause,” says Equality Texas Board Member Jeanne Rubin of Frisco TX, who along with friends and family is organizing the event to raise awareness and money. Equality Texas is the only non-partisan statewide political advocacy organization lobbying the Texas legislature for the elimination of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. “We invite the participation and support of all in our community that believe in love and equality!”
