Brad Pitt Donates $100,000 in Name of Marriage Equality

by at . Comments

Brad Pitt has made his feelings on gay marriage very well known once again.

The actor, who has vowed not to marry Angelina Jolie until everyone and his/her partner can exchange vows, donated $100,000 this week to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in of the organization's efforts in campaigning for marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington State.

"It's unbelievable to me that people's lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days," Pitt wrote in an email to HRC members and supporters today. "If you're like me, you don't want to have to ask yourself on the day after the election, what else could I have done?"

The also actor donated the same figure to fight California's Proposition 8 last year, a ballot initiative that would take away same-sex couples' rights to wed.

He has spoken out in the past and labeled New York's gay marriage ruling an "encouraging step."
