Just days before a gay marriage law went into effect in New
Zealand, the singing trio of AnikaBoh&Hollie released a video in
support of marriage equality.
Anika Moa, Boh Runga and Hollie Smith make up AnikaBoh&Hollie.
“We wanted to do something that would be a joyful celebration of
same-sex marriage,” Hollie Smith told Stuff.co.nz.
“The new laws in New Zealand prove that we're a progressive
country that values human rights. Allowing people to love who they
want is a fundamental human right.”
The video for the track Why Don' We features
gay and lesbian couples and messages of supports such as “Love +
Love = Love” and “Support Marriage Equality.” (The video is
embedded on this page. Visit
our video library for more videos.)
“We're not a political group,”
Anika Moa said, “we're just human beings who are happy to see this
right extended to everyone in New Zealand.
“The song and the video are dedicated
to all the people who have suffered for a long time without this
Zealand gay marriage law takes effect Monday.)
