Actress Anne Hathaway plans to donate the proceeds from the sale of the photographs of her and Adam Shulman’s wedding to nonprofits fighting for marriage equality.
One such recipient will be the Freedom to Marry.
Freedom to Marry’s Adam Polaski told The Advocate, “Hathaway is doing her part to ensure that same-sex couples across the country can enjoy a fairytale wedding like hers; this week, she announced that she’ll be donating some of the sales from her wedding photographs to non-profits advocating for marriage for same-sex couples, including Freedom to Marry.”
Hathaway has a gay brother and she says she’s an advocate for LGBT equality. In 2008, she received the Ally Award from the Human Rights Campaign.
At that time, she said, “I don’t consider myself just an ally to the LGBT community, I consider myself your family. And so, I’m doing what we should all do with our families — I’m loving you, I support you, I completely accept you as you are, as I hope you do me, and if anyone ever tries to hurt you, I’m going to give them hell.”
