Actress Uma Thurman is the latest celebrity to join the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) New Yorkers for Marriage Equality campaign.

“What we're fighting for is a conservative value: the right to make a lifelong commitment to someone you love,” Thurman says in her 30-second video released Wednesday.

“Please join the super-majority of New Yorkers who support marriage equality. The time is now. The time is for New York to lead again,” she adds. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

The 41-year-old Oscar-nominated Thurman is best known for her roles in Director Quentin Tarantino films' Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Volume 1 and Kill Bill Volume 2.

Thurman is among the growing list of celebrities, professional athletes and prominent politicians to record a video for the campaign that began last year.

The prospects that New York would become the sixth state to legalize gay marriage brightened considerably on Monday when proponents picked up the endorsements of four previously undecided state Senators. Later in the day, a fifth previously undecided senator, Roy McDonald, announced he'll back the measure. On Wednesday, the Assembly, as expected, approved the measure and sent it to the Senate.
