Jim Loves Jack

Jim Loves Jack is a Canadian documentary film, released in 1996. Directed by David Adkin, the film is a documentary about Jim Egan and John Norris "Jack" Nesbit, a same-sex couple who were at the centre of the landmark Supreme Court of Canada case Egan v. Canada, which established sexual orientation as a prohibited basis of discrimination under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Egan also had a longer history as an activist, having been Canada's first prominent LGBT rights activist in the 1950s and 1960s before retreating into a quieter domestic life with the more publicity-averse Nesbit.
