NEW YORK – Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour appears in a video with the Human Rights Campaign – the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization – for its “New Yorkers for Marriage Equality” campaign. In the video, Wintour is clear and straight-forward with her powerful message: “As far as I’m concerned, having the right to say ‘I Do’ is as fundamental as the right to vote.” The campaign raises the public profile of marriage equality in New York.

“Ms. Wintour is a no-nonsense perfectionist who embraces basic fairness with her trademark elegance and humanity,” said HRC Senior New York Strategist Brian Ellner. “As the preeminent voice in the global fashion industry and a publishing icon, Anna Wintour represents the best of New York.
