Twenty-one years ago when Jim Obergefell walked into a bar in Cincinnatti and sat down next to John Arthur, the man who would become the love of his life, he had no way of knowing that following the sad loss of John to Motor Neurone Disease his fight to have their marriage recognised on John's death certificate would lead him from the courthouses of Cincinnati to the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court and ultimately into the history books.

Jim Obergefell is representative of the 32 plaintiffs in the case "Obergefell v Hodges", arguably the biggest civil rights case of our time, which in June this year saw same-sex marriage recognised across every US state. Here Jim teams up with long-time friend and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Debbie Cenziper of The Washington Post to tell his story.

LOVE WINS is a legal thriller and love story focused on ordinary people in game-changing circumstances, part Erin Brockovich, part Milk, part Still Alice. It is a story about marriage, grief, courage and the law, but mostly it's about a promise made to a dying man who needed to know that he would be remembered. Through insider accounts and access to key players, LOVE WINS will reveal the dramatic and previously unreported events behind the Supreme Court case that bears Jim's name. The poignant narrative will chronicle how a grieving man and his small-town lawyer, confronted with overwhelming legal, political and personal setbacks, won the most important gay rights case in U.S. history.
