I just finished watching the video below and am still wiping away the tears from my face. Shane Bitney Crone (the creator of the video) says: “It has been said that sharing personal stories is one of the most effective ways to change people’s hearts and minds. This is my story and I hope you are inspired to share it with others.”

Crone tells the story of he and his other half, Tom Bridegroom. They were together for 6 years and while together, they had both come out to their families, they started a business together, adopted a dog, and traveled the world. Then, in 2011 something devastating happened that would change everything.

The NOH8 Campaign is officially here in Vancouver for the first time today and it’s stories like these that remind me of what we’re all fighting for. If you need a reminder, watch this video and share it with others.
