It's Time

Okay – tissues at the ready!

Here’s the most beautiful, awesome and most powerful commercial I’ve come across this year – hailing from Australia and in support of marriage equality.

The video’s called ‘It’s Time’ and is already a viral sensation with over 3 million views on You Tube in the last week alone. It’s one of the most potent videos I’ve seen so far in support of equal marriage rights – and far better than the bland and gutless US equivalents which have so far failed to really take off.

I don’t normally touch on political / social issues here on the site, but as a gay man myself in a long term relationship I feel very passionately about the cause of marriage equality. In fact not being able to marry has caused myself and my partner a lot of problems – both personal and financial. I honestly don’t understand how people who constantly call for smaller government seem so determined to have that same government legislate people’s private lives! Still it’s a battle we WILL win in the end – marriage equality is inevitable.

The handsome star of the video is a New Zealand actor / director / writer called Julian Shaw – and I have a feeling we’re going to be hearing a lot more from him in the years to come. Now let’s just hope the view counts keep growing and as many people as possible get to see the clip. Remember to click ‘like’ in the Facebook button below and spread the word to all your friends!
