Wayne Brady, the host of the game show Let's Make a Deal, says he has no choice but to support gay marriage.

The 40-year-old Brady is also widely known for his work as a regular on the improvisational comedy series Whose Line Is It Anyway?, which ran for 8 seasons on ABC, and his daytime talk show The Wayne Brady Show, which ended in 2004 after one season on ABC and two in syndication.

In a new video from all-gay cabler Logo, Brady explains his support for marriage equality.

“You could easily substitute black for gay,” Brady, who is African-American, says in the 1-minute ad. “In the sense of, years ago a black person couldn't marry a white person. It was illegal. You could be killed. I could be stopped on the street. I could be pulled out of my house.”

“Someone told us we could not be with the people we wanted to be [with] and treated us like second-class citizens.”

“So that being said, in all consciousness I have to, I must, support the fact that you need to love who you want to love.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
