Following Brad Pitt’s $100k lead from last week, Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw have joined the fight for gay rights and matched Pitt’s donation of $100,000 to oppose California’s Proposition 8 which would seek to band same-sex marriage.
Steven Spielberg and his wife, Kate Capshaw, are the latest celebrity donors to the fight against California’s November ballot initiative that would overturn the state Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage.
Spielberg and Capshaw have donated $100,000 to fight Proposition 8, they announced in a statement Monday.
“By writing discrimination into our state constitution, Proposition 8 seeks to eliminate the right of each and every citizen in our state to marry regardless of sexual orientation,” the statement said. “Such discrimination has NO place in California’s constitution, or any other.”
