SAG Comes Out Against Prop 8


Those Hollywood types are all about the homos:

The Screen Actors Guild officially stands opposed to the California ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage.

After weeks of being criticized for not contributing enough to defeat Proposition 8, members of the film-TV industries have recently stepped up their contributions – financial and otherwise – to fight Proposition 8.

“No actor should have to disclose his or her sexual preference in order to get health and retirement benefits,” said SAG Chairwoman Anne-Marie Johnson. “Being legally married means everyone is treated the same. It’s important that we take a stand to protect all actors from discriminatory hiring practices and provide same-sex couples access to benefits.”

No fooling!
