Actress Mo'Nique is the latest celebrity to urge Marylanders to support gay marriage in a new PSA.

“Hey, y'all, it's your girl Mo'Nique,” the Precious star says in the 60-second spot for the Marylanders for Marriage Equality campaign.

“I believe since we've all been given free will, let's use our will to let others be free.”

“Gay and lesbian couples believe in commitment, family and love. If you don't believe me, did you happen to notice that all that's being asked for is the right to be married, which ironically promotes commitment, family and love.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley kicked off the video campaign earlier this month.

Just weeks after New York became the sixth state to legalize gay marriage, O'Malley announced he would follow in New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's footsteps and shepherd a marriage bill through the Maryland Legislature during the upcoming legislative session. Last year, an effort to legalize the institution failed in the House of Delegates after passage in the Senate.

In his ad, O'Malley argues that marriage equality and religious freedoms can coexist. Pressure from religious groups has been credited with ending last year's effort.
