We have put together some photo galleries highlighting our journey from production through our recent premiere. The State Of Marriage was made possible by so many wonderful people we have met along the way.

"Vermont was the first state to grant legal recognition to same sex couples and it continued its pioneering ways by becoming the first state to make same sex marriage legal not from a court ruling, but because the legislature moved proactively to make it a new law."

− Rachel Maddow, MSNBC anchor

"What’s unique about the Vermont story is having people like Beth Robinson, Susan Murray, and Mary Bonauto creating this historic conversation. You have the gay and lesbian community playing politics, hardball electoral politics, for the first time ever. And then, you have the personal stories, people coming together, winning over hearts and minds, neighbor to neighbor. They really changed the course of American history."

− Marty Rouse, Human Rights Campaign National Field Director

"We started this because we believed that same sex couples are entitled to full citizenship and the legal right to marry. We weren’t going to stop until that was done"

− Beth Robinson, co-counsel in the Baker vs. Vermont lawsuit

"Vermont became ground zero in the battle over gay people's freedom to marry and over the place of gay people in American life and law."

− Evan Wolfson, Founder / President of Freedom to Marry

"Beth Robinson and Susan Murray changed the course of history."

− Mary Bonauto, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders
