Indie Trio Fun. Wear Their Marriage-Equality Support On Their Sleeves

Earlier this month we took the band fun. to task after guitarist Jack Antonoff told the Washington Post the guys wanted to create a “nonprofit organization in support of same-sex marriage.”

Why couldn’t they just work with one of the existing organizations, we whined?

Well maybe they read the post because Antonoff—who, like bandmates Nate Ruess and Andrew Dost, is straight—is appearing in a new spot for HRC spotlight hetero Americans who favor marriage equality.


What’s more The Bilerico Project’s James Holmes turned us on to the fact that fun. has a new pro-gay tee shirt out, with proceeds benefiting Revel & Riot’s efforts toward LGBT equality. Check it out below!

      Ummm, maybe I’m wrong, but doesn’t one have to HAVE a right to begin with in order to LOSE that right? Hence, the shirt is incorrect and pointless.

      Prop 8 ring a bell? Rights are given, then taken away all the time. Especially in a country that allows the majority to vote on the rights of the majority.

      @Washington Dad: Well gay marriage has been legal and then rescinded…most famously In California with prop 8. States where it is legal periodically attempt to revoke SSM, recently in New Hampshire (unsuccessfully).

      The constitutional amendment which is supported by the current GOP presidential candidate would invalidate thousands of marriages and enshrine discrimination into the constitution.

      Tennessee passed a law that invalidated local anti discrimination laws that had already been passed, revoking all types of protections.

      Hence, your post in incorrect and pointless.
