New York, NY – A group of musicians including Rufus Wainwright, the National, fun., and They Might Be Giants will perform at a benefit concert on Oct. 30 supporting the work of Freedom to Marry, the campaign to win marriage nationwide.

The concert, titled “Freedom To Love Now! A Concert For Marriage Equality,” will also feature Toshi Reagon, John Cameron Mitchell, Justin Bond, and Doveman, with more artists to be announced soon. It will be held at the Beacon Theatre on Oct. 30 at 8 p.m., with 100% of net proceeds supporting Freedom to Marry.

Freedom to Marry will also be offering VIP packages that include two premium tickets to the concert and the dress rehearsal, a meet-and-greet with the artists on concert night, and a gift bag.

“The key to winning the freedom to marry is raising our voices, opening hearts, and moving minds -- and how sweet and powerful when we do all that through music,” said Evan Wolfson, founder and president of Freedom to Marry. “Freedom to Marry is happy to be a part of the ‘Freedom to Love’ concert and to support such a diverse, talented group of performers who are giving their talent and time to this important cause.”

Freedom to Marry is the campaign to win marriage nationwide. We are pursuing our Roadmap to Victory by working to win the freedom to marry in more states, grow the national majority for marriage, and end federal marriage discrimination. We partner with individuals and organizations across the country to end the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage and the protections, responsibilities, and commitment that marriage brings.
