15 Celebrities We Wish Would Come Out in Support of Gay Marriageby Lilit Marcus on March 27, 2013
This week, the Supreme Court is wrapping up arguments related to Proposition 8, the gay marriage law that got shut down in California. If they deem it unconstitutional, marriage equality for the U.S. will be basically a given (and then the wonderful weddings can commence!). Since we’re still waiting to hear the Court’s decision, it couldn’t hurt if a few famous faces lent their voices to the supportive crowd in the meantime. Might we suggest a few?
Your grandma thinks gay people are weird, but she listens to everything Oprah says. If Oprah went on TV talking about supporting marriage equality, Grandma would have it on her list of favorite things in no time.
It would be even more mindblowing if, immediately after his announcement, he finally proposed to Stephen Colbert.
Okay, she’s not a celebrity yet, but the brand-new first ever female head of the Secret Service has a whole country waiting to hear what she has to say.
She’s adorable, badass, and a newly minted Oscar winner. Even Westboro Baptist Church couldn’t come up with a reason to hate her, and they hate everybody. In other words, Jennifer Lawrence can bring down Kim Jong Un and get same-sex marriage passed in one day without even messing up her hair.
Here, let us write the script for you, Kim. “Since I’ve been married twice, and one of them was basically a sham wedding for TV so I could keep the expensive presents, no one should claim that gay people getting married is ruining the sanctity of marriage.”
The guy is getting some terrible PR right now regarding his role in getting fellow anchor Ann Curry ousted from the Today show. It seems like a great time for the Today Show to do a spotlight on more segments about gay couples, no?
No, she isn’t an American citizen. But nobody will mind her speaking out.
The man who slept with 1,000 women should be open-minded enough to realize that every kind of relationship is valid.
He counts as a celebrity, right?
Whatever she says, goes. So why not use that steely, intimidating gaze to stare right into Anton Scalia’s soul?
Come on, you know a couple of the jurors would be swayed by his ridiculous hotness.
If a couple of the Victoria’s Secret angels offered to strip in favor of marriage equality, every straight dude in America would vote for it.
Jim-Bob and Michelle Duggar
Can you imagine the blockbuster ratings if one of the Duggar kids came out on national TV, then announced a marriage approved of by Mom and Dad? That’s spinoff material for sure.
Come to think of it, maybe her endorsement is not what the LGBT community needs right now.
