June 14, 2011
Cyndi Lauper today joins the chorus of celebrity and every day New Yorker voices in a video for HRC's New Yorkers for Marriage Equality campaign. In the video, the icon says, “It's time for our state to be a leader in the fight for fairness." The campaign, which raises the public profile of marriage equality in New York, can be viewed online at www.hrc.org/NY4marriage.
