Produced by Geoffrey King and, Sunny Angulo with an introduction from San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera, Such A Bittersweet Day brings together stunning photography with oral histories to provide a powerful look at the marriage equality movement in California.
Telling the stories of a wide range of people from LGBT activists to working people, politicos, people of faith and transgendered leaders and families, the combination of oral histories and photograph allows the book to offer a very powerful and unique way of telling individual storieswhilst not losing focus on the bigger issue of marriage equality.
Having photographed political protests across the United States and Britain, as well as travelling to Iraq, Geoffrey King was the perfect choice for the photography for a book of this kind and he certainly hasn’t disappointed with each of his photos managing to capture the emotions of the subjects which range from defiance to determination and disappointment. And with Sunny Angulo, filmmaker, political organizer, designer and journalist, at his side to bring together the oral histories, there is not only a lot of passion behind behind this project but also a whole lot of experience and talent too.
