Last summer, Miley Cyrus got a tattoo of an equals sign on her middle finger and tweeted a photo of it along with the words ‘ALL LOVE is equal.’ At the time she got a lot of backlash about it, but now Miley has taken to Glamour’s website to clear everything up and talk about her views on marriage equality.
She started her heartfelt post with ‘Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry.’
She continued: ‘I believe every American should be allowed the same rights and civil liberties. Without legalized same-sex marriage, most of the time cannot share the same health benefits, you are not considered next of kin and you are not granted the same securities as a heterosexual couple. How is this different than having someone sit in the back of the bus because of their skin color?’
It’s so good to see a celebrity showing their support for gay rights and marriage equality and she seems very clued up about it all. Head over to Glamour’s website to read the full post and let us know your thoughts on the points she raised.
