Director: Vicki Nantz USA, 2013, 35 minutes Website: When Billy Manes lost his partner, Alan, to suicide in 2012, he nearly lost everything he owned to homophobic “in-laws” who swept in to claim Alan’s possessions. Billy would later write about his devastating loss in the Orlando Weekly. In 2013 he agreed to share his story in this documentary to help change hearts and minds in the State of Florida which, at the time, did not recognize same-sex relationships, or provide them any legal protections. Billy Manes died unexpectedly in July. He was friend of the Global Peace Film Festival, and a beloved person in the Orlando community.
