A group of artists in Washington state are creating music to support Referendum 74, the November ballot issue which asks voters to uphold – or reject – a gay marriage law approved by lawmakers.

Music for Marriage Equality has released nearly 30 videos of music artists talking about the issue.

Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie says in one video: “I support marriage equality because I believe that my sister and her wife deserve the same rights that my parents do.”

In another video, Tegan of Tegan & Sara asks viewers to vote for Referendum 74.

“I feel that love is for everyone,” Peter Quirk of The Cave Singers says in another video.

On Tuesday, Seattle-based hip-hop artist Macklemore released the single Same Love, in which he raps: “No freedom 'til we're equal.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

In his Music for Marriage Equality video, Macklemore says he doesn't get homophobia.

“I grew up with two gay uncles on Capitol Hill. … I was always around a community of gay people. … As a hip-hop artist, [being gay is] still a taboo issue. … There's so much fear, and so much of it dates back to religion. … I think that we have evolved as a society, and this is our time to create the change that is right.”
