Ties That Bind

Although LGBT relationships are finally becoming more visible in mainstream media, real-life portrayals are harder to find. With that in mind, filmmaker Antony Osso created the Devotion Project, a series of mini-documentaries chronicling long-term LGBT relationships. “Devotion is not just about perfect compatibility; it’s also about compromise and growing together and overcoming obstacles,” Osso says. The first installment, More Than Ever, was shot in April 2011 and portrayed William Campbell and John Hilton, who have been together for 54 years. Another installment, “Say Only Yes,” chronicles the wedding story of Brian Cantor and Paul Labrecque (pictured).Each short film provides a touching glimpse into an aspect of the LGBT experience.
