WLBT/WDBD -

On Friday, the Southerners for the Freedom to Marry, released a web ad featuring Mississippi-born musician Lance Bass and his fiancé Michael Turchin about their support for marriage for same-sex couples.

You can watch the ad here:

The organization tells us that the ad, the second in a series, is part of a $1 million campaign to grow majority support for marriage in the South. In a poll by the Washington Post/ABC News, a majority of people in South supported marriage for same-sex couples, with half of Southerners in support and only 42% opposed.

In the video, Bass says, "We're here; our feet are planted here in Mississippi, and we can tell you by experience that there's tons of support down here. … Growing up in the South and seeing how change is definitely happening down here way faster than I ever thought it would happen here, I think we have grown leaps and bounds … This is where we need to start taking it to the next level. We want to encourage everyone to be a part of Southerners for the Freedom to Marry."
