There’s a ot of momentum behind marriage equality in the US, but that has inevitably resulted in a harsh (and sometimes nastily petty) backlash from some conservatives, such as Indiana’s so-called ‘Religious Freedom’ laws, and the fact more anti-LGBT legislation has been proposed in Texas this year than ever before.
One man who doesn’t have any time for this is Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, who was caught by GLAAD on the red carpet of the premiere of Broadway’s Finding Neverland, where he was keen to say “I don’t understand why every person shouldn’t have the rights of any other person all the way down the line.”
He adds, “I’ve been a big supporter of gay rights for forever and I think it’s absurd that there’s still an issue about marriage. I mean, I think it’s insulting also to the gay community to have to constantly bring this up again and again. There are far more important issues to deal with. Let’s end this silliness, accept everyone for who they are and what they are, and embrace that and move on.”
He wasn’t the only one, as the likes of Ansel Elgort and Derek Hough also spoke of their support for marriage equality in GLAAD’s #GotYourBack campaign video, which you can take a look at below.
