Ellen DeGeneres has finally done it!
After drawing fire for her allegedly lackluster support for gay marriage in California, the lesbian funny lady appeared on The Tonight Show and told right-wing activists not to “promote hate.” Still, some said that wasn’t enough. Well, the 50-year old’s most recent plea should quell the queer masses, for she today released a video urging her fellow Californians to vote “no” on Proposition 8, a ballot measure that would overturn the State Supreme court’s green light for gay marriage.
Says the recently wed DeGeneres:
Hi, I’m Ellen DeGeneres. I got to do something this year I never thought I’d ever be able to do: I got married. It was the happiest day of my life.
There are people out there raising millions of dollars to try and take that right away from me. You’ve seen their ads on TV. They’re twisting the truth, and they’re trying to scare you. I believe in fairness. I believe in compassion. I believe in equality for all people. Proposition 8 does not.
Please, please, vote NO on Prop. 8.
Those of you who want to help should head on over to the Vote No On 8 website. It’ll do you good and definitely brings good queer karma.
