Campaign for Marriage Equality Celebrates Release of New Video


TAMATI COFFEY, ANIKA MOA, DAME CATH TIZARD, RACHEL HUNTER, NIGEL LATTA AND OTHER KIWI PERSONALITIES JOIN THE CAMPAIGN

It’s about love.

That’s the message from a large group of prominent New Zealanders who feature in a new video in support of the Campaign for Marriage Equality.

New Zealand’s Got Talent host Tamati Coffey led the video initiative, which also stars household names such as Alison Mau, Rachel Hunter, Anika Moa, Dame Cath Tizard, Oliver Driver, Nigel Latta, Orene Ai’i and Danyon Loader.

Coffey says he was overwhelmed at how many well-known faces were keen to support the campaign. “Many New Zealanders have come out in support of Marriage Equality and it’s time for those of us in the public eye to stand up and be counted too,” he says. “It’s been a big team effort, all for love and equality.”
The video, directed by Scott Spicer and produced by Sage Haggart, is intended as a call to action New Zealanders at home and overseas to support the Campaign for Marriage Equality and to share the video far and wide.
