The ad from the Why Marriage Matters Ohio campaign features a gay couple from the state who married last October in New York after 50 years together. The two men discuss their long-term relationship in the 30-second spot released Wednesday.
The ad is expected to run for a week in the Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Toledo markets.
Ohioans approved a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in 2004 with 62 percent of the vote.
