Megan Mullally and hubby, Parks and Recreation’s Nick Offerman, have joined the ranks of celebs stumping for equal rights as part of HRC’s Americans for Marriage Equality.
Mullally, best known for her indelible character Karen Walker on Will and Grace, is a long-time LGBT rights advocate who married Offerman in 2003.
The couple jokes that on their wedding night Mullally thought she was marrying Cedric the Entertainer but Offerman showed up instead.
“Any random man or woman can show up at a 24-hour wedding chapel in Vegas, exchange I dos.” Offerman says. “And boom, they’re married,” Mullally adds.
“So why can’t gay and lesbian couples who’ve literally spent their entire adult lives together have the same opportunity?” Offerman asks.
Watch the video, which is a part of HRC's Americans for Marriage Equality, a campaign that features prominent Americans who support committed gay and lesbian couples getting married.
