Freedom to Marry launches national TV ad declaring ‘It’s time’ for marriage


Staff Reports

A new national television advertisement released by Freedom to Marry will begin airing on Sunday morning network news shows in Washington, D.C.

The 30-second spot, which will be broadcast on cable news programs later in the week, declares, “It’s time” for the freedom to marry and tells the stories of same-sex couples and their families in 31 states who are harmed by the denial of marriage.

The spot highlights the tangible harms of this denial and underscores the urgency of national resolution on the question of whether same-sex couples can marry as soon as soon as possible.

“The ad underscores the human costs of prolonging marriage discrimination,” said Evan Wolfson, Founder and President of Freedom to Marry. “Every day of denial is a day of real and needless injury, indignity, and injustice for too many families across the country – and time matters.”


On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether to hear arguments in same-sex marriage appeals from five states.
