Cut and pasted from an email from the Peter Tatchell Foundation:

Out4Marriage video campaign launched
Support full equality, not just gay equality
Straight civil partnerships & religious same-sex marriages too

Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell is backing the new Out4Marriage.org campaign and has made a supportive YouTube video, which can be viewed here:

Members of the public are encouraged to make and upload their own Out4Marriage.org videos to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, to create a social media mass campaign for marriage equality.

Find out more about the Out4Marriage.org campaign:

"In a democratic society, everyone should be equal before the law. The Equal Love campaign urges that civil marriages and civil partnerships should be open to gay and heterosexual couples, without any discrimination based on sexual orientation," said Mr Tatchell.

The Equal Love campaign is seeking to overturn both the ban on same-sex civil marriages and the ban on opposite-sex civil partnerships. It seeks full marriage and partnership equality, as well as the right of clergy to conduct religious same-sex marriages if they wish to do so.

Raks's Says

This video came in today and quite frankly it is a Godsend. In my humble opinion, it makes the argument for equal marriage in a highly articulate and intelligent way and blows the other arguments out of the water.

PLEASE, if you believe in free speech and democratic debate, watch the video and THEN make up your mind on this issue.

As Peter makes clear, this issue is about equality for all. The principle is equality and free and equal choices for everyone. In a democratic society we should all be equal before the law.

The argument is made and I would argue irrefutable.
