British Marriage Equality Group Releases Support Ad

 

The Coalition for Equal Marriage has released a video designed to support the push for marriage equality in Britain.

Watch the video, entitled Homecoming, below:

Writing in a piece for PinkNews.co.uk, the film’s Director, Mike Buonaiuto, said:

“One day I would like to marry my partner of almost 5 years. And the celebration of our commitment should mean no more or less than any other straight couple. I made the film to promote change and also inspire others to use their creativity to support equality.”

The Coalition for Equal Marriage is a grassroots response to an organized and religious conservative-backed opposition group determined to derail the British Government’s push to legalize marriage equality.

Currently, there is an ongoing Government consultation on marriage equality, however ministers have been clear that this is to gather feedback on issues surrounding marriage equality and not on whether marriage equality should be law because that question has already been decided.

Marriage equality has received the full backing of Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron and while the Anglican church as a whole has acted against the move, a number of religious leaders have also said they support civil marriage equality as a matter of fairness.

Loves conquers all bounderies and people should be free to give their love to whoever they choose. Why are some people so against people of the same sex being in a loving relationship. Time to broaden their narrow minds.

That was just beautiful! It should move many people.
That said, I DO wish LGBT material wouldn't glorify the Military.
LGBT people ought to be in the forefront in fighting for a World Without War {i.e., Patriarchal Domination}.

However, that all being said, and my honest opinion --
it WAS still a BEAUTIFUL picture.
I can hardly believe that those men were "only acting" -- it looked so real, so intimate.....
some aspect of their real lives WAS being shown on the screen.....
Yes, moved to tears. And, in context, the Military association WAS appropriate.... as there is that heterosexual parallel..... on all levels.

I made a video about why Homosexuals should have equal rights. It’s at my YouTube channel Zarrakan, and here’s the link:

Watch it, share it, and join the fight against the evil Homophobes.
