Lady Gaga continues her record of advocacy for LGBT causes with a video urging support for marriage equality in the four states where marriage-related measures are on the ballot Tuesday, BuzzFeed reports.
In the video, released today as part of a social media campaign called The Four 2012, Gaga says, “I just wanted to remind those of you who live in Maine, Minnesota, Washington, or Maryland that you can actually vote for marriage equality on the ballot this year.”
In Maine, Maryland, and Washington, voters will decide whether to affirm marriage equality in their states, while in Minnesota, they will decide whether to put a ban on same-sex marriage into the state constitution.
“No one speaks more to young people than Lady Gaga,” said Brian Ellner, a cofounder of The Four. “And they support equality more than any other group. If we are going to win and make marriage equality history on Tuesday in all four states, we need young people to get out and vote in record numbers.”
Added fellow cofounder Ryan Davis: “We’re reaching millions of young voters in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington over the next four days, focusing on getting out the vote, and Lady Gaga has just become a major amplifier of equality.”
