  1. Loving the campaign.

    It would be good to see some sports personalities, more politicians, Royalty and others on side too – as well as more real people,

    Obama supports us.

    Civil rights will be our. Lets keep this campaign up until we win – for however long it takes.

    Could Walliams do a video with “his Simon”?

    1. Graeme that’s a good idea!! Hmmmmm!!

      1. I think its a fabulous idea too, and I am sure Walliams would be game and that Cowell could be persuaded.

  2. I’m adopting Ben’s Grandparents, whether they like it or not :)

      Indeed, though mine are long gone. But…my 92 year old aunt supports it and has signed the c4em petition.

    Wouldn’t it be superb if Prince William or Harry spoke up?

    Not so sure about Simon Cowell though, but hopefully he’ll step up to the plate and put his support into it.

    I’d love to see some of those vintage actors chip in such as Maggie Smith, Judy Dench, Diana Rigg, others like Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, Kenneth Branagh, Patrick Stewart, Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and what about Ozzie and Sharon Osbourne?

    1. Prince William, Harry or the Duchess of Cambridge (or all three!) would be fabulous!

      Colin Firth, Daniel Craig, Emma Thompson, Judy Dench, etc are great ideas.

      I also wonder about some possibly obvious choices such as Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Graham Norton, John Amaechi, Christian Jessen, Daniel Boys, Simon Callow, Gok Wan, Russell Grant, Cameron McIntosh, Matt Lucas, Russel Tovey etc

      Perhaps some less obvious ones such as:
      Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jude Law, Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, Julie Walters, Imelda Staunton, Debra Stephenson, Russell Howard, Adele, etc

        Why on earth would Simon Cowell step up to the plate? And would you want him to speak on our behalf? Someone who has Max Clifford on his payroll keeping the Sunday papers full of fluffy stories about how Simon clearly can’t be gay cause he’s banging all these ‘fabulous babes’. The guy needs to be honest with himself first before being a spokesperson for anyone else.

    Bids are in for many of the people listed. And we’re in negotiations for when they’ll be. We are likely to be releasing a few big name political videos next week as well as some big stars. In part the scheduling is as part of the build up. It’s also important for us to show a lot of these great user generated videos. Check out the Labour shadow cabinet ones we’ve put up recently on YouTube

    As Britain’s Got Talent Judge, David Walliams’s support for Out4Marriage is mentioned here, I would like to take the opportunity to say that I was disappointed that the gay ballroom dancers, The Sugar Dandies failed to make it through to tonight’s Grand Final of BGT and I wish them well in the future. The way they were warmly welcomed by the audience just shows how far we have come on our journey to acceptance.

    Meh. David Walliams has yet to come out, which he inevitably will and Stephen Fry was in the closet so long that when he did come out he remained celibate for a number of years with some bullcr@p excuse about it. These ‘celebs’ make my skin crawl.

    1. Some gay people that believe everyone in the public eye who can do camp humour must be gay make my skin crawl!

    2. It’s not about who would appeal to you to hear the message that same sex couples should be able to marry – its about who the wider populations (predominantly heterosexual) would like to hear that message from. I think most of the suggestions on here including Walliams and Cowell are potential names which could attract and encourage support in many varied aspects of the population.
