Writer/Director Ira Sachs and Love is Strange stars John Lithgow and Alfred Molina have teamed up with Tie The Knot as guest designers, creating their own specialty bow ties inspired by the film. In Sony Pictures Classics’ poignant modern-day love story, Ben (Lithgow) and George (Molina) finally “tie the knot” after nearly four decades together. With the goal of advocating for the civil rights of gay and lesbians throughout the world, Tie The Knot releases collections of neckwear seasonally to raise funds for organizations that support marriage equality.
The three limited edition one-of-a-kind bow ties are:
The bow ties, which retail for $25 each, are now available exclusively at The Tie Bar. Proceeds from the sale of the bow ties will go to various organizations that are fighting for the civil rights of gays and lesbians every single day, as well as to fund Tie The Knot’s international public education campaign to help continue to move the dial in support of marriage equality.

“Love is Strange is a film about the family we choose as gay people,” said Sachs. “And our bowtie honors the importance of a meeting place like Julius’ to the building of community.”
Sachs’ husband Boris Torres added, “For Ira and I, it was also where we fell in love, so it seems particularly fitting as a metaphor for our relationship, and marriage.”

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.
The same can be said of other...
