Barbara Bush Supports Gay Marriage

Barbara Bush Supports Gay MarriageIn a break from her father's political views, Barbara Bush, daughter of former President George W. Bush, has expressed her support for gay marriage.

Vocally advocating for something her dad wanted constitutionally banned, Barbara filmed an emotional PSA for the Human Rights Campaign this week. "New York is about fairness and equality," she says in the video (below). "Everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love.”

Barbara's break from her father's position is bold, but not unprecedented. Meghan McCain, daughter of former Presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. John McCain, is a vocal gay marriage advocate, as is her mom, Cindy McCain.

The next Bush family gathering might be a bit awkward, but good for Barbara for having the courage to stand up for what she thinks is right.
