Jennifer Hudson’s ‘I Still Love You’ Video Follows A Reluctant Dad Who Learns To Accept His Gay Son

Jennifer Hudson channels her inner dance diva and shows her support of same-sex marriage with her new music video, “I Still Love You.”

The clip, which made its MTV and Logo debut June 3, follows a father as he comes to terms with his gay son, who then ties the knot in an interracial wedding.

Hudson said “I Still Love You,” which is a cut from her latest album, “JHUD,” is “about love, and everyone should have love and have the right to love who they want to love.”

She told MTV, “I thought it would be powerful to take a concept like trying to find your equality in love no matter who you love.”

The 33-year-old Oscar winner and “American Idol” veteran has long been an outspoken supporter of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Joking that she is “a queen on the inside, too,” Hudson told The Advocate last year,

“The gay community has meant so much to me throughout my life, and there have been many gay people who have been positive influences for me.

From my best friend to many of my teachers, my first producer, and more — there have been so many.

That’s why I feel like this campaign is a perfect fit, because it’s something I’m fully supportive and passionate about.”

The new video launches Logo’s #All50 marriage equality effort and is also part of the “Turn It Up for Change” campaign, a new initiative between the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and W Hotels that is focused on the fight for same-sex marriage across all 50 states.

Canada, proudly for marriage equality since 2004

Stephen Tyrone Colbert (born May 13, 1964) is an American comedian, writer, producer, actor, media critic, and television host. From 2005 to 2014, he was the host of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, a satirical news show in which Colbert portrayed a caricatured version of conservative political pundits. It was announced on April 10, 2014, that Colbert had been chosen to succeed David Letterman as the host of the Late Show on CBS after Letterman’s retirement in May 2015.

Colbert originally studied to be an actor, but became interested in improvisational theater when he met Second City director Del Close while attending Northwestern University. He first performed professionally as an understudy for Steve Carell at Second City Chicago; among his troupe mates were comedians Paul Dinello and  Amy Sedaris, with whom he developed the sketch comedy series Exit 57.

Colbert also wrote and performed on the short-lived Dana Carvey Show before collaborating with Sedaris and Dinello again on the cult television series Strangers with Candy. He gained considerable attention for his role on the latter as closeted gay history teacher Chuck Noblet. His work as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s news-parody series The Daily Show first introduced him to a wide audience.

It’s Official: The Supreme Court will review the freedom to marry in 2015

Today, January 16, the United States Supreme Court announced that this year, they will hear arguments in a case on the question of whether same-sex couples should have the freedom to marry and if anti-marriage laws nationwide should be struck down as unconstitutional. The Court granted review of an out-of-step ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, which ruled in November against the freedom to marry in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. In each of these cases, federal judges had ruled in favor of the freedom to marry for all, and the 6th Circuit reversed each decision.

The Court also set a briefing schedule in the cases, with the plaintiffs’ opening brief due February 27, the states’ response briefs due March 27, and final reply briefs April 17. That likely puts an oral argument in the case on track for late April, with a decision expected by late June 2015.

SCOTUS Blog has reported the argument will likely be April 29.

The Court Rules Definitively on Gay Marriage

Gay marriage is now legal in 36 states and the District of Columbia, but what happens in the remaining states will depend on how the court rules. Given the momentum surrounding the issue of it’s hard for many analysts to see the session ending without the justices affirming that gay couples have the right to marry.

If they do, it would play right into the strategy of Freedom to Marry, the national campaign for marriage equality, which has been working to build pressure around the issue so the Court feels obligated to act.

Gay marriage support hits new high in Post-ABC poll


http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2013/03/18/gay-marriage-support-hits-new-high-in-post-abc-poll

Public support for gay marriage has hit a new high as Americans increasingly see homosexuality not as a choice but as a way some people are, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The poll shows that 58 percent of Americans now believe it should be legal for gay and lesbian couples to get married; 36 percent say it should be illegal. Public attitudes toward gay marriage are a mirror image of what they were a decade ago: in 2003, 37 percent favored gay nuptials, and 55 percent opposed them.
The Supreme Court takes up the issue of gay marriage next week, and nearly two-thirds of all Americans say the matter should be decided for all states on the basis of the U.S. Constitution, not with each state making its own laws.

Among young adults age 18 to 29, support for gay marriage is overwhelming, hitting a record high of 81 percent in the new poll. Support has also been increasing among older adults, but those aged 65 years old and up remain opposed, on balance: 44 percent say same-sex marriage should be legal; 50 percent say illegal.

A slim majority of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents under 50 years old now support gay marriage. Nearly seven in 10 of those aged 65 and up oppose it, although that is down from more than eight in 10 just four years ago.

There has been a related movement in public opinion about homosexuality. Fully 62 percent of Americans now say being gay is just the way some people are, not something people choose to be. About 20 years ago, fewer than half of the public said so.
In the current data, about three-quarters of those who do not see homosexuality as a choice support gay marriage, with most supporting it “strongly.” More than two-thirds of those who see it as a choice oppose gay marriage, with almost all intensely against it.
Currently, gay marriage is legal in only nine states and the District of Columbia, but public views are more similar than not across state lines. In the states that allow gay marriage, 68 percent say such same-sex marriages should be legal, but so too do 56 percent of those in states where the practice is not legal.

Intensity on the matter is, however, different in those states. In places where gay marriage is legal, 52 percent feel strongly that it should be. That falls to 39 percent feeling strongly that it should be legal in states where it currently is not.
The Washington Post-ABC News poll was conducted March 7 to 10, among a random national sample of 1,001 adults. The margin of sampling error for the full survey is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
