    I just found out that Shane is my cousin, I am also an activist, I feel lucky to still have my partner of 13 years now, we have had some close calls with death.  Kind of strange as we also live in a building that is four stories tall and have been to nearly all the seven wonders of the world.  I am so sorry to hear about his loss, I look forward to meeting my cousin some day. :)

    "Better to have love and lost than never to have loved at all"... But it must be so painful to lose your partner of 6 years.  What a great way memorialize their relationship and validate what really happened while Tom was alive.  Great film.  Tear jerker.....  So Sorry for Shane,

    This movie makes me more motivated to make Javier a Happier and Loved man.  I love him with all my heart.  This will be an inspirational video for him to watch with me.

    I loved this film. So heartbreaking but it shows you love exists. I didn't even know Tom but after watching this I wish he was still tragic.

    @MrSmekalka they were talking about wanting to be treated equal because he wasn't when they did not let him enter the hospital room its not a gay thing to desire equalness nor a straight thing I find that it is just human nature to want to be treated fairly with respect equality and dignity it is a movie because they were denied the equality every human deserves

    Uhm, sorry, but it is a gay thing. This would not be a story if it were not a gay thing.
