An ad supporting same-sex marriage will begin airing in Ohio—the first time a marriage-equality ad will be shown since November 2004 when Ohio’s took up a vote on gay marriage. While there isn’t expected to be a vote in November’s elections this year, Why Marriage Matters Ohio says the ad’s purpose is to educate. The 30-second spot introduces Ohionians to Henry Hawley and George Vassos of Chagrin Falls near Cleveland. “Attitudes in Ohio and across the country are changing fast as communities are coming together to have very serious conversations about the meaning of family, fairness and the future,” Michael Premo, campaign manager for Why Marriage Matters Ohio, said in a statement. “Our hope is that sharing Henry and George’s story of love and commitment will accelerate those conversations and further increase support for marriage equality in Ohio.”
