  1. This is a very cool man. It is nice to have our straight brothers and sisters speak out for us

    Way to go, Bruce! Without straight allies, none of us will achieve full equality, not in America, not in the UK, nowhere. They are the ones who helped us fight and won in Canada, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Norway, Sweden and South Africa, as well as the four states in America.

    Well done Bruce. Good to see he speaks sense. Although not surprised – he’s always been a good guy.

    He never asked me if I supported his marriage. Who the hell cares what some breeder mook from NJ thinks or wants. My love life has nothing to do with him.

  5. What’s new — probably 90% of Hollywood and the entertainment
    world support homosexual marriage. I’d like to see the names
    of those who oppose homosexual marriage and start some
    controversy here.

  6. I love his music – this is really nice to read.:) Thanks, Pink News.

    I think it’s wonderful of Bruce Springsteen to support marriage equality. You GO, Bruce!!!!!

    Whilst his music is lost on me I am delighted that Bruce Springsteen has spoken out in this way.

  9. Likewise, never been a fan of the music but thank you for your support Bruce; we need strong straight allies (eg, Brad Pitt, George Clooney etc)

  10. In response to the comment made by “the Menstruator” 9th December. Springsteen is clearly not making a comment on your, or any individual’s, love life but, on a legislation that is being passed in his home town – a legislation that effects everyone. I’m not sure what a ‘breeder mook’ is but, all I can say is Bruce has always been a spokesperson for equality and civil rights for all kinds of people. He is a grossly misunderstood artist but, if people took the time to listen they would see the extent of his sensitivity, humanity and integrity.

    Connie, exactly right and I don’t see any famous British celebrities coming out in support of full marriage equality with the exception of Sir Ian McKellen. The complacency is appalling.

    The Menstruator, you just don’t get it do you? Bruce isn’t asking anyone to support straight marriages, he’s asking for the people of his state to stop supporting discrimination which is what barring same-sex couples from marriage is all about. His state, New Jersey, already has Civil Unions that provide most of the rights of marriage but they’ve proved to be very unequal in his state and elsewhere and are not working the way they were intended. Cases have been documented to prove the point. Right now, Menstruator, YOU can’t even get married in the UK if you wanted to and straight couples have no right to form a legal union other than marriage, its as simple as that. That is hardly equality for anyone. Its nothing more than legal segregation and in all democracies, EVERYBODY should be equal with equal rights, not partial rights. Seven countries have recognised that imbalance and have addressed it. Sadly, we haven’t and in our case, the UK, its just a minor step to take. The problem is, no government, labour or tory has the courage and the integrity to implement it, unless its dragged kicking and screaming by the EU Court to do anything, just as it did with allowing gays to serve openly in the military. Its appalling.
