Marriage Equality is on the ballot in four states this November: Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington. The Four 2012 has created an active, evolving campaign that brings the issues around Marriage Equality to light. Each day a new video or graphic will be posted and supporters of Marriage Equality are encouraged to repost the content via Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and emails. Bruce Springsteen and Lady Gaga are featured in supportive ads on The Four 2012 website.
The Springsteen graphic created for the campaign reads:
Listen to The Boss
"The marriage-equality issue should be recognized for what it truly is - a civil rights issue that must be approved to assure that every citizen is treated equally under the law."
I couldn't agree more with that statement and urge those who support equal treatment for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters to let their voices be heard now.
The Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, Cory Booker, retweeted the Springsteen image yesterday and added:
The Lady Gaga graphic reads:
This November Vote for marriage equality.
I think that gay marriage is going to happen. It must.
We are not actually equal - humanity - if we are not allowed to freely love one another.
