Yesterday, the Pride Agenda launched its first-ever TV ad campaign across New York to show how real New York families are hurt when same-sex couples aren’t allowed to marry. The powerful ad features Barb and Don Crawford from Cicero, New York. Barb and Don—like tens of thousands of parents across the state—know firsthand the pain of having a child who is denied access to the 1324 rights and protections of marriage. The Crawfords feel heartbroken that one of their daughters can get married to and protect the person that she loves, but the other can’t.
In just over 24 hours, we’ve already begun to receive unprecedented positive feedback and support demonstrating the amazing momentum of the movement and the comittment of LGBT advocates and allies across not just the state, but the nation.
Some feedback in the media includes:
Both the Albany Times-Union and the Syracuse Post-Standard – papers in two of the key areas where our ad is being shown – editorialized today on the need to pass marriage.
