Drescher Shows Her Support For Gay Marriage

Published on September 03, 2008 with No Comments

Fran DescherActress and activist Fran Descher is leading the charge to end opposition to same-sex marriages in California by co-hosting a cocktail party at her ex-husband’s Los Angeles home.

The US star and her ex, Peter Marc Jacobson, are teaming up to host a benefit for Equality California – the group fighting to defeat an upcoming ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage in California.

Gay couples, like Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, have been taking advantage of new marriage laws that permit same-sex nuptials by exchanging vows this summer – but the new regulations could be overturned in November if anti-gay marriage activists get their way.

Drescher told “I’m a gay icon… (and) I’m a political activist who believes in preserving the American dream which is tolerance of diversity and the separation of church and stateĀ…It’s simply un-American not to be tolerant of different lifestyles. If you wanna live in a single-minded, religious-based country you’re in the wrong place.”

Guests at Wednesday night’s fundraiser have paid at least $100 each to hang out with Drescher and her ex. The actress insists she and Jacobson are the best of friends.

She added: “We have very similar beliefs in terms of ideology as well as theology.”
