Limited Partnership
 

Decades before The Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8, one gay couple fell in love and fought for over 40 years to stay together in spite of a government that tried to tear them apart. LIMITED PARTNERSHIP is the love story between American Richard Adams and his Australian husband, Tony Sullivan. In 1975, thanks to a courageous county clerk in Boulder, CO, Richard and Tony were one of the first same-sex couples to be legally married in the United States. Richard immediately filed for a green card for Tony based on their marriage. In response, the INS sent a letter denying the application because "you have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots." Outraged at the letter and to prevent Tony's impending deportation, the couple sued the U.S. government. This was the first federal lawsuit seeking equal treatment for a same-sex marriage in U.S. history, and began Richard and Tony's decades long battle to remain together.
