“The Meeting”

Lutheran Bishop Herb Chilstrom was once against gay marriage, but his views were challenged one night when he and his wife Corinne, a Lutheran Minister, were invited to meet with gay couples face to face. The LAB team made this ad for Minnesotans United for All Families during the 2012 marriage campaign.
