Fran Drescher Sounds Off for Marriage Equality
October 21, 2010
Actress Fran Drescher is the latest New Yorker to join the Human Rights Campaign’s “New Yorkers for Marriage Equality” campaign, raising the profile of the timely fight for equal marriage rights in the Empire State. Her new video and the entire campaign can be viewed online at whttp://www.hrc.org/campaigns/new-yorkers-for-marriage-equality. In her call to fellow New Yorkers, Drescher states that marriage equality is a matter of “justice and equality and liberty for everyone.”
This is the sixth installment of the series; Drescher joins Mayor Bloomberg, Moby, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, actress Julianne Moore and designer Kenneth Cole to support marriage equality in the state – In the coming weeks and months HRC will continue the series of prominent New Yorkers speaking out in support for marriage equality to include: Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, David Chang, Tom Colicchio, Whoopi Goldberg, Ethan and Ryan Hawke, Christopher Meloni and Joan Rivers. An equal marriage bill failed last year by eight votes in the New York state Senate despite having the support of the Governor and being passed in the Assembly. HRC’s Campaign for New York Marriage is working to defeat senators who voted against equality and instead to elect fair-minded leaders. To date, HRC’s New York PAC has raised over $150,000 for election-related activities.
