NFL player joins marriage equality campaign

Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita is appearing in a Web ad for the Americans for Marriage Equality campaign.

In the ad, Fujita says, “I’ve been married for 12 years, and I know that it is unfair to keep other loving and committed couples from getting married and protecting their families.”

“Gay and lesbian couples value love and commitment in a relationship, just like everyone else,” said Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, sponsor of the Americans for Marriage Equality effort and the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights group. “Scott Fujita understands how important marriage equality is to millions of families across the country.”

Fujita played on the 2010 World Champion New Orleans Saints team and is now with the Cleveland Browns.

HRC has released six other marriage equality ads, including ads featuring Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker, Oscar winner Mo’Nique, civil rights legend Julian Bond, Emmy Award winner John Leguizamo, Broadway playwright Katori Hall and “The Good Wife’s” Josh Charles.
