Support for gay marriage in the UK continues as activists document the success of their campaign and viral YouTube video
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.’
