Richard Blanco, the first openly gay, first Latino and youngest poet to read at a presidential inauguration, has penned a poem for marriage equality.

Blanco was asked to write the poem by Freedom to Marry to mark the tenth anniversary of marriage equality in Massachusetts.

Blanco's Until We Could was turned into a beautiful and moving video.

The film, directed by David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints) and Yen Tan (Pit Stop), is narrated by actors Robin Wright (House of Cards) and Ben Foster (Lone Survivor).

“It seemed like the perfect fit immediately,” Blanco told The Daily Beast of the project. “It was a cause I believed in and wanted to be a part of. As the first openly gay inaugural poet, it felt very inspirational. Love is love, marriage is marriage. In both cases they come with the good and bad, the great and dysfunctional.”

The poem and video were the idea of Pete Spears, a Freedom to Marry volunteer, who said the film was shot with real couples in and around Austin, Texas.

A middle swath of the poem talks about the increasing momentum for marriage equality.

Blanco's latest collection of poems, The Prince of los Cocuyos: A Miami Childhood, arrives September 30.
