Actor Morgan Freeman narrates a new gay
marriage video by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's
largest gay rights advocate, released Sunday.
In the video, titled Dawn of a New
Day for Marriage Equality, HRC touts the historic gains made on
“America stands at the dawn of a new
day,” Freeman is heard saying over images of the Statue of Liberty
as a new day begins.
Images of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
and from the Civil Rights Movement – “Freedom, justice, and human
dignity have always guided our journey for a more perfect union” –
are tied to the current fight for marriage equality.
“Now, across our country, we are
standing together for the right of gay and lesbian Americans to marry
the person they love. And with historic victories for marriage,
we've delivered a mandate for full equality.”
“The wind is at our back, but the
journey has just begun. Join us,” Freeman adds. (The video is
