New Ad For Ohio Marriage Equality Tugs At The Heartstrings
Be sure to have tissues nearby before clicking play on the latest ad for marriage equality in Ohio.
Columbus' ABC affiliate has more on the re-energized push for same-sex marriage in Ohio:
For the first time in a decade, marriage equality ads will be seen on Ohio TV.
Starting Wednesday an ad supporting gay marriage will begin running statewide.
The TV spot tells the story of George and Henry - they're two Ohioans who have been together fifty years. Although their marriage license says New York, here's how the commercial ends: "Hopefully, Ohio will be next."
Next week, a huge rally will be held in Cincinnati.
Mike Premo, of Why Marriage Matters Ohio told ABC 6, "We're expecting a really big turnout. It's going to be a historic day."
The rally will be held the night before a federal court hears gay marriage cases from four states. According to Premo, "There's a tremendous amount of momentum and we've seen 28 rulings in a row from judges in favor of marriage equality across the country."
