The World Channel is set to helm the broadcast debut of this multiple award-winning documentary To A More Perfect Union: U.S. V. Windsor on Monday, June 10, at 7 p.m.
The film chronicles octogenarian Edie Windsor and her attorney, Roberta Kaplan, on their quest for justice. Windsor was in a 40+-year relationship with her love, Thea Spyer. Upon Spyer's death, Windsor was forced to pay a huge estate tax bill because the federal government denied federal benefits to same-sex couples.
Windsor sued the U.S. government over this lack of recognition, making her a renowned LGBTQ-rights advocate. Her win in U.S. V. Windsor was a pivotal moment in the marriage-equality movement.
