Post image for WATCH: 27 Million People Have Seen This Marriage Equality Video And Yes It Will Make You Cry

Today the Supreme Court heard testimony for and against Prop 8, the California law that keeps LGBT Americans from marrying the one that they love, and in honor of this day a friend sent me this video of “Same Love” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Featuring Mary Lambert) off of their debut album The Heist, available now on iTunes.

This video tells the beautiful and, sometimes, hard life of two men in love as they encounter their lives together.

And a VERY special thank you to Kerri Harrop (Music for Marriage) for her hard work and dedication in the fight for marriage equality and her devoted support to Same Love as an idea, song, and finally now as a music video. “Same Love” and the campaign to approve Ref 74 wouldn’t be the same without you, Kerri.

Just as I have the right to marry whomever I love so does every man and woman have the same right – Gay OR Straight! This video says it all!
