APPLETON - On the same day the Supreme Court took on the Defense of Marriage Act, so did same-sex marriage supporters in the Fox Valley.
The documentary "Gen Silent" was screened at the Appleton Public Library. The film addresses the struggles of older people in the LGBT community, and the effect the Defense of Marriage Act has had on their lives.
The filmmaker says the act is taking away important benefits from gay couples, while opponents say it is about protecting the sanctity of marriage.
"They're the one that have the Social Security survivor benefits at stake, healthcare benefits, tax credits for inheritance, all this stuff that is needed to grow old without being impoverished," "Gen Silent" filmmaker Stu Maddux said.
"Government is appropriately concerned with marriage and should be looking at strengthening it, not redefining it," said Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action.
The screening of the movie was part of a series being put on by the Appleton Public Library meant to educate the community about different people and lifestyles.
