Drew Barrymore Attends Gay Marriage Rally

Drew Barrymore Attends Gay Marriage Rally

Drew Barrymore and her BFF Chris Miller show their support for the freedom to marry following the California Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold Proposition 8, on Tuesday (May 26) at the intersection of Santa Monica and San Vicente in West Hollywood.

The California State Supreme Court voted 6-1 to uphold Proposition 8, which makes it illegal for same-sex couples to marry in the state of California. More than 18,000 same-sex couples that wed before Prop 8 was voted in will still be legally married.

Drew, 34, shared at the rally, “I am who I am because of the people who influenced me growing up, and many of them were gay. No one has any right to tell anyone what makes a family… You choose your battles in this world. If you fight for everything, you’re just someone on a soapbox. This is something that means everything to me.”

To help Drew‘s cause, visit Equality California at EQCA.org.

    God has a right to tell us what makes a family.

  • bijou

    Wonder if Drew herself is actually gay, there’s always been rumours that she is and recent rumour is that she and Cameron Diaz were once a couple.

  • Blake

    How about the pics of Brent Kyle with the fedora…..lookin’ good!!

  • k

    Leave it to the people of the state of California to not respect the right of the voters. There is alot of things I don’t like in this country, but I respect people’s choices. I don’t go take it to the Supreme Court.

  • J

    ‘recent rumour is that she and Cameron Diaz were once a couple.’

    haha

    No one could ever accuse you of not having a sense of humor. :)

  • Laura

    you can be family without being married.

  • Dumbroadrew

    The PEOPLE voted… against gay marriage! No amount of celebrity hoopla is going to change that… get over it!

  • J

    Seeing your face makes me smile, even if you’re not gay and that rumor about you and Cameron Diaz isn’t true. :)

  • Flex

    Hi Drew! I haven’t seen you since you were 12, and I was 16. We were sucking the vodka off our wrists, because we couldn’t hold onto our drinks at “Arena” in NYC.

    You look wonderful, and thanks for your support! You’ve always arrived at the right places at the right time!

    Carry on, be well!

  • Flex

    @Dumbroadrew:

    We’re going to vote your pathetic homophobic obsessed religion to outer space!!!!!

  • J

    You’re the most beautiful woman in the world.

  • Mary

    (((Drew Barrymore)))

  • Carlos

    will she support those who want to have sex with animals? Because they are next in line…we just haven’t come out of the stalls yet….

  • cindy

    @MISSY:
    YOU Go girl!

  • Marc

    @Carlos: F*ck off, Carlos!

  • Lucas

    @MISSY:

    yeah it’s so horrible that two folks are allowed some rights cause they happen to have the same parts.

    and yet a woman of questionable mental state and no money can go out and have IVF to give birth to 14 children without at least a father to support them. where’s the sanctity of the family you folks are trying to protect in that one. don’t see you blasting OctoMommy for bringing those bastards into this world.

  • JANE

    “It amazes me when I looked at California and saw churches that had nothing to say about police brutality, nothing to say when a young black boy was shot while he was wearing police handcuffs, nothing to say when they overturned affirmative action, nothing to say when people were being delegated into poverty, yet they were organizing and mobilizing to stop consenting adults from choosing their life partners. There is something immoral and sick about using all of that power to not end brutality and poverty, but to break into people’s bedrooms and claim that God sent you,”

    Go Drew Go

    I Love You

  • Jako

    Go Drew Go

    I Love You

  • hmmm…

    hahahaha…being gay is cool….that’s what celebs are for….believe in morality means homophobic…who’s being judgmental here…we who believes in what’s right or wrong are called with all sorts of names and most of the times we chose not to debate with these so called brainy modern people coz we know it’s pointless talking to a dead wall!we go straight to legal perspective…so…majority wins…lead your lives in whichever way you are having it now…but do not destroy the future with your sick mentality…that’s all we want.

    it’s true…it’s about time those community who loves having sex with animal will be screaming for the same rights too…what are we gonna say to them when they are harping on their identity equality?

    i have gay friends and they know where i stand..i respect their way of life and vice versa…they don’t even bother to be married coz marriage means they’ve lost the unique way of life they’ve chose….so celebs and fellow pro-gay rights…..free your minds….you are still locked somehow!

  • EmmmmmAAAA

    @MISSY: why ?????????????

  • http://ahh EmmmmmAAAA

    MISSy And CINDY … are you actually serious????????

  • http://Justjared soprano

    Weird woman; even weirder views………..

  • MISSY

    Hannah and Vanessa,

    Homophobe is just a stupid made up word used by people to justify
    their support for this sick twisted life style. Anyway you look at it it is NOT normal! If it were the NORM, than everybody would be doing it!
    Hence the NORM in NORMAL!

    The reason for marriage between a man a woman to procreate. How can you truly and naturally do so if you are in a so-called relationship of a man and a man or a woman and a woman! You can’t, therefore it is NOT natural.

    It’s better to be close minded and narrow minded than to have NO MIND at all! You people are sheep that follow the leader.

  • JESSSS

    Misy, you slut NOT ALL MARRIED PEOPLE HAVE CHILDREN.

    BEING MENTALLY RETARDED IS NOT “NATURAL” OR NORMAL SO SHOULD WE LOCK THEM INSIDE A BASEMENT OR KILL THEM FOR THEIR “SICK” LIFESTYLES?

    HAVING SEX WITHOUT BEING MARRIED IS NOT NORMAL AND AGAINST THE BIBLE, SO SHOULD WE CONDEMN 90% AMERICANS (SINCE MOST PEOPLE HAVE SEX WITHOUT BEING MARRIED) DIE SINCE THEY’RE NOT “NORMAL”?

    BEING OVERWEIGHT IS NOT “NORMAL” . GLUTTONY IS ACTUALLY A SIN, WHAT DO YOU FEEL ABOUT FAT PEOPLE?

    BITCH STOP PICKING SINS FROM THE BIBLE THAT SUIT YOUR BIGOTRY. GO DIE.

    GO KILL YOURSELF YOU IDIOT.

  • vmars111

    Good for Drew!

  • carlos

    @Marc:
    with my dog or with my goat or with my horse….nice!

  • carlos

    @JESSSS:
    fat people too….they should have rights…..but i tell you this i won’t share my plane seat with you

  • layla

    @12 (“Me”): we don’t all believe in God and shouldn’t be forced to live by “His” rules. besides, didn’t God love everybody? Why not gays too?

    i can’t believe how judgemental people are. it’s like you were all born in the 20′s or something.

  • Laura

    @layla:

    God does love everybody…but it’s still wrong.

  • J

    Gonna miss your sweet voice
    That soulful voice
    On the nightshift
    We all remember you
    Ooh the songs are coming through
    At the end of a long day
    It’s gonna be okay
    On the nightshift
    You found another home
    I know you’re not alone
    On the nightshift

    everibody deserve be happy and deserve love.
    people who vote yes on prop8 dont have heart.

  • Crash

    This is so ridiculous already. It’s really quite simple. And the same rules should apply to Hetero AND Gay couples. Simply put: Marriage is a Sacrament. It is not bestowed by any Court or President or any other person. We, as a society, have become flippant with the term. We let heterosexual couples joined in Court call themselves married. They are not. Theirs is a Civil Union. Gay’s joined in Court are not married either. Theirs is also a Civil Union. I fully support making the married/not married rule apply to all unions. And if man/woman civil unions make them man and wife and eligible for benefits as a spouse so should gay unions make them whatever/whatever and eligible for benefits as a spouse. HOWEVER, unless joined by a clergymember of a bible based religion …they are not and never will be “married”. If a gay couple can find someone in the Clergy to “marry” them…then they are married. If not, then they aren’t. Same goes for hetero unions. It doesn’t matter what any court does or does not decide. You can call those not joined by a memeber of the clergy “married” until the cows come home. I don’t care. They aren’t. and never will be.
