Mike Buonaiuto explaining the Out4Marriage project.
Out4Marriage.org is a YouTube project that spotlights why individuals support marriage equality. Modeled on Dan Savage and Terry Miller's "It Gets Better" project that reassures young people that things will get better in the future, the Out4Marriage project was conceived in support of the campaign to change the law to allow same-sex couples to marry in the United Kingdom.
The project was conceived by PinkNews founder Benjamin Cohen and Mike Buonaiuto, the director of "Homecoming," a moving Coalition for Equal Marriage video that went viral almost as soon as it was released.
Although the campaign was only launched a few weeks ago, already high-profile politicians and celebrities have made videos in which they explain why they are "coming out for marriage."
The videos that have been made so far concentrate on the campaign for equal marriage in the United Kingdom, but the YouTube project is expected to eventually go global.
