Slash releases video supporting gay marriage

Guns N' Roses man and his wife speak out against Prop 8

Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash has released a video in support of gay marriage.

In the video clip, Slash plays the US national anthem 'The Star-Spangled Banner' on guitar in the background while his wife, Perla Hudson, speaks out on behalf of same-sex unions.

"I married my sweetheart, you should be able to marry yours too," she says. "Say no to hate and yes to equal rights. Keep up the fight."

The couple encourage people to participate in protests against Proposition 8, a California ballot initiative banning gay marriage, which voters passed in the November 4 election.

Slash and his wife Perla Hudson have collaborated on a new video to express their support for same-sex marriage and urge people to continue to protest Proposition 8, the California initiative banning gay marriage, which passed in the November 4 election [via NME.com].

“I married my sweetheart,” Hudson says on the video clip, pausing to give an emphatic “that’s him!” nod toward Slash, who plays the “Star-Spangled Banner” on guitar in the background. “You should be able to marry yours too. Say no to hate and yes to equal rights. Keep up the fight.”
