Love Wins is a half-hour documentary that tells the story of two women, Jan (83) and Emily (87), who met and fell in love during a time when doing so was strictly taboo. During this time they raised a family of 3 children, while living in suburban New Jersey, completely in the closet. They’d travel to Provincetown each year, where for one week would be able to live their true lives. Their story has many layers to it, not the least of which is that Jan met Emily while Emily was working with Jan’s husband!
Their compelling and at times, humorous story gives a fascinating look in to how gay couples lived double lives, fearing being “outted.”
After 45 years of living that double life, Jan and Emily finally got married, once marriage equality passed as law in New Jersey and now both women are community activists and proud flag-waving members of the social movement that changed the course of history.
