New Marriage Equality Ad Running in Texas Features Police Officers Defending Gay Colleagues

by The Next Family January 08, 2015

Police officers defend Gay co-workers

Freedom to Marry began airing a statewide television ad this week in Texas featuring Fort Worth police officers who speak out in support of their gay colleague’s freedom to marry. The 30-second ad began running Sunday in multiple Texas markets during news and public affairs programs and comes days before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals hears oral argument in the Texas marriage case DeLeon v. Perry.

“Our ad shows Ft. Worth police officers standing up for their gay colleague‘s freedoms,” said Marc Solomon, national campaign director of Freedom to Marry.  “With poignancy, they remind Texans that anyone who puts their life on the line to protect other Americans should not be treated unequally or be denied the ability to protect their own family by being barred from marrying.”

The ad is part of Texas for Marriage, a joint campaign by Freedom to Marry and Equality Texas to amplify bipartisan support for marriage across the state. George W. Bush media advisor Mark McKinnon serves as a chair of the campaign.

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
