Susan Sarandon voices support for marriage equality

“While marriage may not be my thing, if it’s your thing you damn well ought to be able to have it — equally and unequivocally.”

Actress Susan Sarandon appears in a video for the Human Rights campaign, voicing her support for the marriage equality movement. Oscar-winner Sarandon made light of her own history with marriage — she divorced her husband in 1979, and then spent over two decades in a relationship with fellow actor Tim Robbins without marrying. “The America I want to live in celebrates diversity and believes in equal rights for all families no matter what what they look like,” she states in the video. “So join me and the majority of Americans who support marriage equality.” It isn’t the first time Sarandon has voice support for the LGBT community, with the Thelma and Louise actress appearing in GLAAD’s 2003 commercial “Love is Love is Love” to promote acceptance of LGBT individuals.
