Lance Bass and fiance Michael Turchin talk about their love and wanting the freedom to marry in Mississippi
In this video, Mississippi residents Lance Bass and his fiancé Michael Turchin share why they are Southerners for the Freedom to Marry.
They paint a South that is far different from the bigoted stereotypes.
Lance says in the video: “We’re here; our feet are planted here in Mississippi, and we can tell you by experience that there’s tons of support down here. Growing up in the South and seeing how change is definitely happening down here way faster than I ever thought it would happen here, I think we have grown leaps and bounds … This is where we need to start taking it to the next level. We need to open the dialogue about this.”
The video is part of a new campaign called Southerners for the Freedom to Marry, a partnership of Freedom to Marry and statewide/regional equality organizations.
