Have we got a party planned when same-sex marriage is a given instead of a hope in every state... But in the meantime we just have to gloat a little. Between pimped-out rally signs, viral videos and witty T-shirt slogans the gays make for protesting look…dare we say….FABULOUS. Leave it to our boys, girls and grrrrls to fight fire with Broadway which is exactly what a group of college students did to protest North Carolina’s inequality bill, also known as Amendment One. We suggest you read on to check out the musical, unless you’re one of the chosen who will find himself with an NC ballot this May. In that case we’re demanding.
Inspired by Dustin Lance Black’s Prop 8: The Musical, two NC Chapel Hill students as well as another student from NYU created and released their version this past December to urge NC voters to punch the “Oh Hell No” hole on the Amendment One portion of the ballot this May.
Actor and assistant director in this musical feast, Joe Ehrman-Dupre, told the NYU Local, “We wanted to get voters in North Carolina to realize the importance of their vote within the larger frame of the state.”
While the video focuses on legalizing those gay weddings in the Outer Banks (or wherever it is gays marry in North Carolina), Ehrman-Dupre wants us to know this video is not just for Carolinians. “Even if you aren’t a citizen of North Carolina, you are or can be supporters of marriage equality, a right being threatened all across our country.”
