By now, Edie Windsor is a living legend within the LGBT community. After all, her legal struggles to be recognized as the surviving spouse of her longtime partner, Thea Spyer, following Spyer’s death led to last summer’s historic Supreme Court decision declaring the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. As part of its monthly film series commemorating Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival’s 25th anniversary, TIGLFF will screen the film Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement at St. Petersburg’s freeFall Theatre. The touching and powerful documentary showcases Windsor and Spyer’s love story from start to finish — the first time they met in the West Village in 1965, summers on Fire Island, Spyer’s battle with multiple sclerosis and their wedding in Ontario. Enjoy a pre-film dinner at Queenshead, and don’t miss Windsor’s appearance at Equality Florida’s May 3 gala in St. Pete. 7:30 p.m., April 9, 6099 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at tiglff.com.
