With days to go until the end of the UK government’s consultation into equal marriage in England and Wales, Out4Marriage have produced a video highlighting the celebrities who’ve supported the campaign.

Politicians Michael Cashman, Andy Burnham, Chrispin Blunt, Theresa May, Ed Balls, Yvette Cooper; musicians The Saturdays, Sinitta, Paloma Faith; Christian minister, David Coleman; Baroness Oona King; and entrepreneur Richard Branson have all come out for equal gay marriage and lent their voices to the cause.

Out4Marriage is a cross party campaign that seeks to support politicians in changing the law to end marriage discrimination.

The video, Homecoming, which shows a surprise proposal of a gay soldier to his partner has already received three quarters of a million hits since is was posted in April 2012.

Film maker, Mike Buonaiuto said: ‘The Out4Marriage campaign has united generations and started to make political waves. It’s amazing how far we’ve come in such a short space of time from three quarters of a million YouTube views, to meeting the Home Secretary.’
