Game show host Wayne Brady and actress
Pauley Perrette are featured in two ads urging LGBT voters to
register and vote.
The 43-year-old Perrette, who is best
known for her role playing Abby Sciuto on the CBS police drama NCIS,
appears in an ad discussing workplace protections.
In the 1-minute ad, two
African-American workers discuss their racist and homophobic boss.
“He just can't fire us for being
black,” one worker says.
“That's true. He can't just fire us
for being black. But he can fire me for being gay,” the second
worker says. “Job discrimination against gays and lesbians is
still legal in most of this country.”
At the end of their conversation,
Perrette says: “Same country. Different rules. Vote.”
In the second ad two women discuss
being stay-at-home moms and how differently their relationships are
treated by the government. (The video is embedded on this page.

All gay cabler Logo released the ads on
Wednesday. The network is also prepping an
election eve special to be hosted by comedian Wanda Sykes.
