Out gay actor and activist John Barrowman (Dr. Who – Torchwood) has joined the campaign, and calls the clip “powerful stuff.”
“It brings home to people how they would feel if some crazy law made it illegal for them simply to be themselves,” he says. “What if it were illegal for me to want to sing? Or to have an American accent?” he said in a statement. “We are all human beings and we all deserve the same rights. And that includes the right to love whoever we choose to love.”
