On our side

It’s always great to have the support of our straight friends and family, but you have to admit It is cool to hear such support coming from movie celebs and sports stars, both local and international.

In saying that, no other country does celeb endorsement like the United States.  Like New Zealand, there is so much going on in the U.S. currently with regards to marriage equality, with a number of states pushing for changes in current laws to allow same sex marriage (changes to laws will be voted on in the upcoming election November 6th).  It is amazing to read of all the major support for marriage equality from musicians, celebrities, well known politicians alike, with huge campaigns like The Four 2012, Music for Marriage Equality and NOH8 working together to bring such celebs together for benefit concerts, tv appearances and endorsements.

Express magazine has put together this great article entitled ‘On Our Side’ which has some unique quotes from well known celebs, both homegrown and not, voicing their support for marriage equality.

I wonder if the homegrown celebs have made a submission yet… ?
