Marriage Equality Ad From Italy

This is refreshing: In a PSA entitled “I Will Marry You,” the Italian LGBT advocacy group Arcigay has no doubt unleashed a finely tuned, almost poetic video on ordinary life and same-sex relationships that looks very much like Australia’s “It’s Time,” which The Advocate called “possibly the most beautiful ad for marriage equality we’ve seen.”

Below, sprinkled with music by Lorenzo ‘Jovanotti’ Cherubini, yellow sunlight and the sound of two men in love flutter all around like snowflakes. In other words, the video might knock your heart out. (via Instinct Magazine)

When I was in Italy conducting research, I actually joined Arcigay because it was the only way to get into the gay bars. It's a very cool organization, and I think this ad proves just that.

Expertly conceived and well producted video. Even though I did not understand the words of the music, no translation was required to understand!

Once again you amaze me with the wide variety of your postings, Joe Blow!

Well done! It's too bad there's not much chance the TV stations in this country would offer PSA time to such a controversial issue.

Joe: That seems unusual, you had to join a gay association in order to access a gay club/bar.
