Funded by PIFVA‘s Finishing Fund, Married in Spandex is the story of a sparkling journey. As they begin a life’s journey together, Amanda andRachel are determined to make their wedding day a unique and memorable affair. Married in Spandex follows the young women as they navigate their way from their home in the City of Brotherly Love to the town of Ames, Iowa for a celebration like nothing anyone has ever seen. From the “brides mamas” and “butches” to the officiant (lady rapper and performance artist Leslie Hall) to Amanda and Rachel’s tutu-clad Chihuahua, the two have planned the day of their spandex-clad dreams. Married in Spandex is a clear-eyed record of one same sex couple that wants their wedding to be about their family and not a statement about so-called family values. Told simply, despite the complicated questions its story raises, Married in Spandex is part road movie, part political documentary, part performance art and, utterly and unquestionably, all love story.
