The tides are changing in the South as Florida begins same-sex marriages today, and now the organization Freedom to Marry hopes to capitalize on this momentum by airing television commericals that feature straight allies speaking out for their gay and lesbian friends. The first ad features Fort Worth police officers who support their gay colleague. The 30-second ad began running on Sunday, just days before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals hears oralarguments in the Texas marriage case DeLeon v. Perry.

The ad is part of Texas for Marriage, a joint campaign by Freedom to Marry and Equality Texas to amplify bipartisan support for marriage across the state. George W. Bush media advisor Mark McKinnon serves as a chair of the campaign.
