HRC congratulates longtime HRC and LGBT equality supporters Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on their recent nuptials.
The pro-equality couple married in France last weekend, according to a spokesperson for the couple.
Pitt and Jolie have been longtime supporters of marriage equality. In 2012, Brad Pitt donated $100,000 to HRC as part of our efforts to secure marriage equality in states across the country.
In an email to HRC members and supporters Pitt wrote, "It's unbelievable to me that people's lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days. Every person's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is enshrined in our country's Declaration of Independence, but powerful, well-funded groups are flooding the airwaves with lies trying to take away those rights from certain people... and we can't stand for it."
Congratulations to the happy couple and their family!
