A Life Gone Too Soon… Grieving Partner Fights To Be Recognized (Video)
Every day we live without the rights given to married couples is another day GLBT people live as second class citizens. Even with the recent comments from Joe Biden in support of gay marriage, stories like this just show why we simply cannot wait any longer.
Shane Crone thought he had found the love of his life. Despite the violent and hateful attempts from family members to ruin their happiness, Shane and his partner Tom spent 6 loving years together and had made plans to marry when it was recognized by their home State of California.
When tragedy struck and Tom lost his life, Shane became the focus of a campaign of hate from Tom’s family. Not only did he lose the love of his life, he was devastated financially and threatened bodily harm. Rather than sit back and allow this to happen quietly, Shane put together an amazing tribute to Tom and their life together.
Shane has also started a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of same-sex partners’ rights. Head on over to Facebook and become a fan of Shane’s group.
