Marie Osmond Supports Marriage Equality
April 3, 2013 by Maureen McCarty, HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
Friday Marie Osmond subtly broke ranks with some of her family members by taking a stand for marriage equality.
Marie Osmond, who has a lesbian daughter, sat down with Diane Sawyer on Friday’s airing of ABC’s World News to talk about her latest memoir.
"The God I believe in is a God of love," said Osmond, who is a Mormon. "I believe in [my daughters] civil rights, as a mother. I believe my daughter deserves everything she desires in life..."
Some members of Osmond family participated in an anti-marriage equality rally in Utah last Tuesday, while the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in two key marriage equality cases.
