    This documentary tells the remarkable story of James Egan, a pioneer champion of gay rights who challenged sensationalistic media stereotypes of homosexuality through his journalistic efforts in Canada during the Fifties and Sixties. More recently, the 73-year-old Egan and his partner, Jack Nesbit, made international headlines when they took the Canadian government to court to fight for legal recognition for same-sex couples. An intimate portrait of a relationship between two men which spans nearly fifty years of gay history in North America, Jim Loves Jack is an inspiring story of political activism and a moving testimony to the dignity of gay and lesbian relationships.
