For over 40 years, Lennie and Pearl have shared a passion for social justice and for each other. Now, at ages 77 and 88, the indelible spark of their love inspires many others as they fight for their right to marry in North Carolina.

Living in the Overlap is the improbably true story of two girls growing up in Brooklyn in the 1940s, falling in love in the Midwest, and making a life together in North Carolina.

Lennie is an attorney focusing on LGBT issues, and Pearl is a retired professor working on various political issues.

They are surprised to have reached icon status. Lennie and Pearl offer wisdom about enduring relationships and think of themselves as two circles – often overlapping – that represent how they are simultaneously independent and interdependent.

The film features public and private moments in Lennie and Pearl’s lives and includes sequences shot during their efforts to defeat North Carolina’s anti-gay marriage amendment. Living in the Overlap is a beautiful and inspiring love story set against a backdrop of ongoing political struggle.
