Pitt donates against Proposition 8
California has gone through milestones and leaps to legalize gay marriage that it seems awful it is going to be voted against in the upcoming elections.
But Hollywood’s the Most Influential Actor is the one donating big to the Anti-Proposition 8 campaign. Brad Pitt has donated USD 100,000 to fight California’s November ballot initiative that would overturn the state Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage.
Proposition 8 is in favor of banning same sex marriages meaning making them illegal in the sunny state of California.
Brad Pitt when donating $100K commented the matter:
Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn’t harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8.”
The ballot question known as Proposition 8 essentially will ask voters to prohibit the practice of same-sex marriage, which was approved this year by the California Supreme Court. Trevor Neilson, Pitt’s political and philanthropic adviser, told The Associated Press that Pitt was surprised that his colleagues in the entertainment industry had not donated more money to support the battle against Proposition 8.
Earlier in the week, Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced they had donated USD 2 million to help fight HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis in Ethiopia.
