According to reports, Brad Pitt has donated $100,000 to support gay marriage rights. Angelina Jolie‘s for-equality partner made the donation to fight Proposition 8, an initiative on California’s November ballot that would overturn the state Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage. Brad Pitt said in a statement,
“Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn’t harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8.”
This latest donation just came after he and Angelina Jolie announced that they had donated $2 million to help fight H.I.V./AIDS and tuberculosis in Ethiopia.
