Lucy Liu Joins HRC’s “New Yorkers for Marriage Equality” Campaign
April 5, 2011
Actress Lucy Lucy Liu has joined HRC in a new video supporting marriage equality in New York. Liu, known for her work in such films as Charlie's Angels and Kill Bill, is a native of Jackson Heights, Queens and knows that New York is all about diversity and acceptance. In the video she encourages all New Yorkers to join in the fight for equal marriage.
Two recent New York polls show a majority of New Yorkers support marriage equality. A Siena Research Institute Poll earlier found 57 percent of New Yorkers support marriage for same-sex couples and another recent poll by Quinnipiac University had support at 56 percent.
The New Yorkers for Marriage Equality campaign is centered on video testimonials from New Yorkers who support the right of same-sex couples to marry. To date, HRC has released videos from Lucy Liu, Bill Bratton and Rikki Klieman, Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, the Fabulous Beekman Boys, Russell Simmons, Mark and Sunrise Ruffalo, John Slattery, Joan Rivers, Barbara Bush, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Whoopi Goldberg, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, Fran Drescher, Moby, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, Julianne Moore and Kenneth Cole – with more to follow in the coming weeks and months.
