|Told in their own words, this is the true story of the first gay
couple in the world to be issued a marriage certificate and their fight for
government recognition. Kevin Bourassa and Joe Varnell made international news
headlines and human rights history in January 2001 when they became the first
gay couple anywhere in the world to be issued a government marriage
certificate. They did this according to a well-established Christian tradition
the reading of the banns which has been incorporated into
provincial law in Canada.
Just Married is the story of two people who chose to make a life together and sought the support of both church and state for their marriage. They believe they have taken part in an event that will expand human rights, not just for Canadians, but for citizens, families, and communities everywhere.
