UK Home Secretary Theresa May has recorded a video for the Out4Marriage campaign which calls for global gay marriage.

In the video, May, who is also the Minister for Women and Equality, stated that “marriage should be for everyone.”

“I believe in marriage. I believe marriage is a really important institution; it's one of the most important institutions we have. Marriage binds us together, it brings stability. I think marriage makes us stronger. But I believe also in commitment and fidelity in marriage. I think these are good things and we should enable them to flourish.”

“That's why I believe if two people care for each other, if they love each other, if they want to commit to each other and spend the rest of their lives together, then they should be able to get married and that marriage should be for everyone,” she added.

Prime Minister David Cameron is backing a plan to make Britain the 11th nation to legalize gay marriage. Currently, the government recognizes the relationships of gay and lesbian couples with civil partnerships.
