DAVID COLLINS presents ACCIDENTAL ACTIVISTS: Mark Phariss, Vic Holmes, and Their Fight for Marriage Equality

Accidental Activists is the deeply moving story of two men who struggled to achieve the dignity of which Justice Anthony Kennedy spoke in a series of Supreme Court decisions that recognized the "personhood”, the essential humanity, of gays and lesbians. Author David Collins tells Mark and Vic's story in the context of legal and social history, and explains the complex legal issues and developments surrounding same-sex marriage in layperson's terms.
