On October 11, 2009, Ms. Carlisle announced her strong support for marriage equality by appearing in a video urging supporters to donate to the No on 1 campaign in Maine. In the video, Carlisle stated that she recorded the PSA not as a musician and public figure, but as a mom. “My son, James, is gay, and I want him and every other gay person out there to have the same opportunities and rights that I’ve had in life.” [Link]
