Emmy winner & gay ally Sharon Gless has joined forces with Equality Florida Institute in its fight for marriage equality. Since 2013 Gless has taken a leading role in Equality Florida's “Get Engaged” campaign a public education campaign & PSA to build support for marriage equality in that state. In recognition of her support Equality Florida will be honoring Ms. Gless & the six plaintiff couples with the Voice for Equality Award at the organization’s Annual Miami Gala at the Pérez Art Museum on Sunday March 16th. Nadine Smith, CEO of Equality Florida stated, "There are many celebrities who call Florida home & we applaud Sharon Gless for publicly expressing her support for LGBT equality. We are at a tipping point in the movement for full equality & the voices of allies like Sharon Gless will make a huge difference." In the video Gless states, “I can’t imagine what my life would be like if someone told me I couldn’t marry the person I love. Yet that is what is going on in the State of Florida every day, when they tell thousands of men & women that they cannot have what want we all want ….To marry the one person we love with all our heart. I’m asking you to support Equality Florida, & join Get Engaged in the fight for marriage equality.” Gless has had a home in Florida for more than 20 years & has been a strong supporter of our LGBT community. She served as Grand Marshal in the Miami Beach Pride Parade, received the Gay Icon Award at Philadelphia QFest, the PFLAG Ally award in Toronto & was honored by L.A.’s Gay & Elder Housing.
