Morgan Freeman narrates new LGBT equality advertisement
Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman narrates a new video advertisement that declares LGBT individuals in the United States are “at the dawn of a new day.”
“Freedom, justice and human dignity have always guided our journey toward a more perfect union,” Freeman says in the 30-second ad, which was released on Sunday.
“Now, across our country, we’re standing together for the right of gay and lesbian Americans to marry the person they love,” the iconic narrator continues. “And, with historic victories for marriage, we’ve delivered a mandate for full equality. The wind is at our back, but our journey has just begun.”
LGBT advocates won a number of victories on Election Day. Voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington approved measures to allow same sex couples to marry, Tammy Baldwin became the first openly gay women elected to the U.S. Senate, voters in Iowa retained a judge who ruled against banning same sex marriage, and voters in Minnesota rejected an anti-marriage equality amendment.
