Young Gay Couple Marries in Beautiful New Clip from Italy: VIDEO


Remember Australia's "It's Time" marriage equality video?

FeetWell, think of this as Italy's version.

A first-of-its-kind video raises the issue of marriage equality in Italy just in time for Valentine's Day. It's called "I'll Marry You" and it's named for a well-known song by Lorenzo 'Jovanotti' Cherubini, who offered the use of it to LGBT rights group Arcigay for this clip, which draws attention to the need for marriage equality in that country. The video took four months to make, according to Italian paper La Republicca and tells the story of a young gay couple who gets married and another lesbian couple who gets engaged at their wedding.  The video is sponsored by Arcigay and AGEDO (the Italian version of PFLAG, as well as Bologna Pride).

  2. Click on the big blank space 'neath the italicized notice. Vimeo is weird about embedding, I guess.

  3. Sweet video. I love Jovanotti! His CD from a few years back, Safari, is great.

  4. I love watching these marriage vids! And although this was favorite is still the Australian vid.

  9. Andy,

    Love this series.

    Question: how important is the word "gay" ("gay couple", "gay wedding", etc.), particularly in the context of a "gay" site?

    Obviously, it's fine to use descriptors, but, in these instances, I'm not sure if the word "gay" is needed.

    With legitimacy, are we not allowed to simply be couples who get married?

    I guess there's something about the word "gay" and how it's used here that makes me think "other".

  10. Lovely ad! We Americans need to figure out how to make equivalent ads to this one and the great Australian ad. Most of our ads have earnest but, frankly, boring talking heads talking about how people should have what we see displayed here.

    One down side, though: I'm hungry after watching those people eating what was undoubtedly delicious Italian food! Oh, well ...

  11. Been with the same man over 40 years, never felt or currently feel the need to marry; but these videos bring tears to my eyes. Seeing these men and women express their love for each other so openly, that is what moves me. To me that is the true message of marriage equality. Love=Love and love is always a beautiful thing.

  13. @Mini- I agree. I dislike the term 'gay marriage'.

    Marriage is a permanent exclusive commitment between two intimate people regardless of gender. In the U.S. the government and religious bigots should no right to declare these marriages false or non-existent, imho.

  18. Reminds me of the day I married the love of my life - such profound joy! If only the rest of the country would follow suit... I just hope I get to see it soon. Now, I feel the need to look at our photos and video, so we can relive that day.

  19. Marriage is marriage. Period. Ain't gay. Ain't straight. It's simply two people, in love, who wish to commit themselves to a lifetime together and have their union recognized civilly. Hate the "gay marriage" label.

  20. @JNO -- I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed the scarves. :D

  21. That was super! I hope the country of my grandparents soon does the right thing and ignores the pathetic Vatican and lets our people love.

  22. Thank you for posting this series. Yes, I wish there were American equivalents but unless it featured Chelsea clones & WeHo zombies it wouldn't get produced.
