Obama’s campaign publishes emotional appeal from gay celebrities

Several celebrities from the LGBT community lent their faces and voices to the re-election campaign of President Barck Obama.

A video posted online features Jane Lynch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Billie Jean King, George Takei, Wanda Sykes, Zachary Quinto and Chaz Bono telling their stories and feelings of joy about the positive direction that LGBT rights has taken under this Administration. The end of the video also points out the pledge made by candidate Mitt Romney to support a Constitutional Amendment which will permanently bar recognition of equal marriage rights for all Americans at the federal level.
