CNN to Air Same-Sex Marriage Ad with Oregon Couples on Valentine's Day

Why Marriage Matters

Before that cynical voice in your head takes control and you swear off Valentine's Day as nothing more than a commercial holiday, tune into CNN this Monday to see a national ad campaign in support of same-sex marriage.

You might even see someone you know.

Throughout the day Feb. 14, a commercial featuring four Oregon couples—two gay, two straight—will air nationwide as the beginning of a series of ads from Freedom to Marry

Basic Rights Oregon developed the 30-second ad, which first aired on Oregon TV stations last summer, and is now part of Freedom to Marry's efforts to legalize same-sex marriage throughout the country. Among the marriage rights effort is an expected ballot initiative in 2012 that would seek to overturn a voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage in Oregon.
