How do lesbian moms celebrate Mothers’ Day? Here’s one family’s answer, via this charming short video, “Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed,” by filmmaker and photographer Mike Shum.
Fran and Anna Simon, the moms in the video, live in Colorado and have been helping lead the fight to enact the state’s civil union bill. You can read more about them in this Denver Post article. Unfortunately, the bill was killed in committee last night, despite testimony from the Simons and others.
As Fran told me, though, “We will continue to fight. It’s not a matter of if we will achieve equality for our families, just a matter of when.”
