Shane Bitney Crone reflects on Tom Bridegroom 6 years later: ‘I am proud to keep your memory alive’
Shane Bitney Crone and his GLAAD Media Award-winning documentary Bridegroom moved so many of us. Today marks six years since the tragic death of Tom Bridegroom with whom Shane had shared his life for six years, Through the documentary we got to know the dynamic Tom and the sweet the thoughtful Shane who remembered his lost love today with this photo collage and these words: It’s almost impossible to believe that it has been six years since we lost Tom. The past six years have not always been easy, nor fun, but I have learned a lot about myself and the world. I’ve learned how important it is to share our stories and fight for equality.
Tom, I will continue to do everything in my power to use your tragic passing to make a positive impact in this world. And despite people thinking it’s odd, or unhealthy, I will continue to speak about you until the day I die. I will never stop loving you, and I am proud to keep your memory alive. Thinking of you today, and always. We love and miss you, Tom.
