Drew Barrymore joins gay activists’ rallyMay 28th, 2009 - 5:13 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 28 (ANI): Actress Drew Barrymore along with Emmy Rossum and other celebrities rallied on the streets of Hollywood to protest against the new California ban on gay marriage.
The celebrities joined thousands of activists to protest about the re-instatement of Propsal 8, which bans same-sex marriages after they were legalised briefly last year.
Star Trek actor George Takei, Kelly Osbourne, Sophia Bush, comedienne Kathy Griffin and singer/actress Deborah Gibson are among other celebrities who have criticised California’s approval of the ban.
“I was raised a good Catholic girl and nowhere in church do I remember it ever being an issue for everybody to be treated equally. I can’t believe it’s 2009 and this is still an issue,” the Daily Express quoted Gibson as saying.
Osbourne added, “It goes without saying that if you love someone, you should be able to marry them no matter.” (ANI)
