This Sunday, theOprah Winfrey Networkwill host the television premiere of Bridegroom, the powerful documentary film about Shane Bitney Crone and Tom Bridegroom, whose loving, committed relationship was tragically cut short.

The two young men’s emotional journey underscores the legal and social challenges facing same-sex couples in America.

Shane and Tom’s story was first launched into the social conscious after Shane’s story of ostracism and emotional tribute to Tom went viral.

As part of the premiere, OWN will feature an evening of programing exploring the state of the LGBT community. At 9 pm ET/PT Oprah will host a conversation about being gay in America with comedienne and actress Wanda Sykes, “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and “Scandal” Emmy award-winner Dan Bucatinsky.  

Bridegroom will premiere immediately following the segment at 10pm ET/PT.
