Mayor Bloomberg Appears in “New Yorkers for Marriage Equality” Video Campaign

New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg is the latest iconic New Yorker joining in 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. The new video and the entire campaign can be viewed online at www.hrc.org/NY4marriage.

Said Mayor Bloomberg:

“I believe that people have a right to marry anybody they want and it isn’t the government’s business to be involved in that choice. This is as basic a right as any other. I am glad to be a part of this campaign and support marriage equality.”

To date, HRC has released four videos – Mayor Bloomberg, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, actress Julianne Moore and designer Kenneth Cole – and more will follow in the coming weeks and months including: Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, David Chang, Tom Colicchio, Fran Drescher, Whoopi Goldberg, Ethan and Ryan Hawke, Christopher Meloni, Moby, Joan Rivers, Daphne Ruben-Vega, Sunrise and Mark Ruffalo and Rev. Al Sharpton.
