Filmed on five continents, in a dozen countries,

"Not My Life's message is ultimately one of hope.
Victims of slavery can be set free and go on to live extraordinary lives. T
he choice between good and evil is, quite simply, ours.

Friday. May 24 and Friday, May 31 at 7pm "EXCLUDED"
"Excluded" follows Tony and Thomas over the last sixteen years as they battle to stay together--to live legally as a couple. They consider California home, but the U.S. won't have them. Ripped from Tony's loving family, they are left to wander the world, waiting... Waiting for laws to change. Waiting for civil rights to be granted to gay and lesbian Americans. Waiting for equality.
