Partners Task Force is an international resource for same-sex couples, supporting the diverse community of committed gay and lesbian partners through a variety of media, since 1986.
To continue our good works, we need your support.
Our main project is the Web site, which contains more than 400 free-accessed articles. We provide the only major, couples’-focused organization on the Internet.
Our constantly updated Web site contains essays, surveys, legal articles, and resources on legal marriage, ceremonies, domestic partner benefits, relationship tips, parenting, and immigration.
Couples, counselors, clergy, personnel staff, reporters, researchers, teachers, students, and government officials frequently access the Web site, and often contact us.
Through our communication efforts, we are able to provide enlightening data and rationale supporting same-sex couples to lawmakers, reporters and students.
In 1993, we produced a musical comedy about a gay male couple and family values, called “The Fight Before Christmas”. It is available as a 7:30-minute excerpt on Demian’s Film & Video Projects - archive DVD. The original 20-min. video is no longer available.
In 1996, we produced the nation’s first documentary on legal marriage. “The Right to Marry”, which was widely distributed. It is available as a 7-minute excerpt on Demian’s Film & Video Projects - archive DVD. This excerpt is useful for generating discussions on legal marriage issues for classes and community gatherings. The original 72-min. video is now out-of-print.
Weekly, we respond to an average of 10 phone calls, and more than 30 e-mails from couples, reporters, students, TV show producers, etc.
We are frequently quoted by the press on issues of concern to same-sex couples, such as, domestic partnership, couples surveys, legal marriage. We also appear on television and radio as experts on couples issues.
