Telluride Gay Ski Week LogoCalling all snow bunnies and winter otters! Telluride’s ten-day long ski event begins this weekend and now includes a special screening of the documentary “Bridegroom” on Tuesday, Feb. 25 in addition to a guest appearance by the film’s producer, Shane Bitney Crone, who will be honored a private reception on Saturday, March 1.

“Bridegroom” chronicles the story of Shane Bitney Crone and his partner Thomas Lee “Tom” Bridegroom, who died in a tragic accident. After Bridegroom’s death, Crone found himself cut off and deprived of any legal protection. The film tells the story of their 6-year-long relationship, and the struggles Crone faced after Bridegroom’s death, including the family not allowing Crone to attend the funeral of his life partner.

Produced and directed by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason. “Bridegroom” premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and attracted further press coverage because former President Bill Clinton introduced the film at its premiere. The film won the festival’s Audience Award for Best Documentary Film.
