Married in Spandex is part road movie, part political documentary, part performance art and, utterly all love story.
MARRIED IN SPANDEX is a love story about Amanda and Rachel, a young lesbian couple who decide to go from Philadelphia to Ames, Iowa to get married by gold lamé devotee and lady rapper Leslie Hall. While the couple begins the trip as a wacky adventure for themselves and their friends, it quickly becomes a family affair in an unfamiliar state.
But, at a time when every same-sex wedding is seen as a political act and brides or grooms-to-be are asked to walk the entire LGBT community down the aisle, will everyone be cheering Amanda and Rachel’s offbeat “I do”? Can a lesbian wedding be all glitter and gold lamé? Can Amanda and Rachel’s road trip revelry convince friends and family to get on board and support their relationship?
Recently, this project was awarded a 'finishing funds' grant from Philadelphia Independent Film and Video Association. This award is an honor, but is not enough to cover the basic post-production costs. We have access to talented, sound, and color specialists ready to help make this film shine, and they can do it all with your contribution. This documentary is aimed at film festival, public television, and niche cable TV audiences.
