Beyoncé: Singer Supports Marriage Equality
Beyoncé is an avid supporter of President Barack Obama—she and husband, Jay-Z raised lots of money for his campaign fundraising effort and she performed the National Anthem during President Obama’s inauguration earlier this year. The Grammy-winning singer has also worked on fitness campaigns with his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama.
Following in President Obama’s footsteps—he came out in support of same-sex marriage in May 2012—Beyoncé wants everyone to be able to ‘put a ring on it’ and is lending her voice to the marriage equality movement.
In a message released on her various social media platforms, the ‘Love on Top’ singer posted a handwritten letter that said: “If you like it you should be able to put a ring on it.”
She concluded the message with: “# we will unite 4 marriage equality!”
“It’s no different than discriminating against blacks,” she said. “It’s discrimination, plain and simple.”
