Actor Brad Pitt sent a statement to People magazine celebrating New York’s recent marriage equality law.
It is encouraging that New York has joined the movement to grant equal marriage rights to its citizens.
But it is each American’s Constitutional right to marry the person they love, no matter what state they inhabit.
No state should decide who can marry and who cannot. Thanks to the tireless work of so many, someday soon this discrimination will end and every American will be able to enjoy their equal right to marriage.
Pitt, who has said he won’t marry Angelina Jolie until everyone can marry the person they love, also donated $100,000 of his own money to fight California’s vicious anti-gay Proposition 8.
