Marriage for All Families: Stories From The Four 2012

Marriage Equality is on the ballot in four states this November: Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington. The Four 2012 has created an active, evolving campaign that brings the issues around Marriage Equality to light. Each day a new video or graphic will be posted and supporters of Marriage Equality are encouraged to repost the content via Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and emails.  Bruce Springsteen and Lady Gaga are featured in supportive ads on The Four 2012 website.

The Springsteen graphic created for the campaign reads: 
Listen to The Boss

 "The marriage-equality issue should be recognized for what it truly is - a civil rights issue that must be approved to assure that every citizen is treated equally under the law."

I couldn't agree more with that statement and urge those who support equal treatment for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters to let their voices be heard now.
-Bruce Springsteen

 The Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, Cory Booker, retweeted the Springsteen image yesterday and added:

Cory Booker
Yes, Bruce truly Rocks! RT : Have you seen what The Boss says about marriage equality? CC: 

The Lady Gaga graphic reads: 
This November Vote for marriage equality.

 I think that gay marriage is going to happen. It must.

We are not actually equal - humanity - if we are not allowed to freely love one another.

-Lady Gaga

Marriage for All Families: Stories From Maine

Published on Oct 2, 2012 by 
The first of a four-part series made in each of the states that have marriage equality votes this November, this short shares the experiences of same-sex couples who want to get married in Maine.

They have the same challenges, responsibilities, and aspirations as any other couple--but they are strangers in the eyes of the law. That's why marriage equality is so important: it aligns personality reality with legal reality, as a simple matter of fairness.

The series is produced in association with The Four, a social media campaign to support marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington State. Learn more and get involved at http://TheFour.com.

Film produced by Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll.
Music by Timmy's Work.

Ralph Baldwin, Jonathan Lee, Ian Grady, Marc DiCenzo, Steven Gustavo Emmons, Ryan Davis, Richard Socarides, Brian Ellner, and Jett House.
