A series of television commercials in support of gay marriage will air Sunday and Monday in Texas.

Freedom to Marry will air ads in eight of Texas' 20 markets, including Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, Beaumont, Corpus Christi, El Paso, Laredo, the Rio Grand Valley, Waco and Wichita Falls, according to the Houston Chronicle.

In the 30-second ad slated to run in the Dallas area, Chris Gorrie, a Fort Worth detective, says that he would like to be able to marry his partner.

“My partner, Justin, and I live together,” Gorrie says in the ad. “Eventually, one day we'd like to get married, just like everybody else.”

Three of Gorrie's colleagues also appear in the ad.

“Texans believe in freedom and liberty, and part of that is being able to marry who you love,” Fort Worth Police Department Neighborhood Police Officer Jay Doshi says. “So Chris should be able to marry whoever he loves.” (The video is embedded on this page.

The $100,000 television buy comes just days before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans hears oral arguments in a case challenging Texas' ban on gay marriage.

The ads are part of the group's Texas for Marriage campaign.
