Actor Missi Pyle and her Smith & Pyle band mate, Shawnee Smith, along with actor/comedian Hal Sparks put a comedic spin on the serious topic of marriage equality (or, more precisely, the lack thereof for gays and lesbians). In a faux marriage ceremony presided over by faux preacher Hal Sparks, Missi Pyle and Shawnee Smith did the deed and got hitched. E!'s Giuliana Rancic, who hosted the event, toasted the happy couple. The faux marriage ceremony is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5lC6zh4bf0
The faux marriage ceremony was written and produced by Ashley Terrill and took place at an event at LA's Kitson Melrose on Nov. 18 to launch the All Love Is Equal tee produced by Revenge Is and to support Love Honor Cherish, a LA-based nonprofit, in its campaign to repeal Prop 8. The event kicked off the signature drive to get enough signatures to qualify the initiative to repeal Prop 8 on the November 2010 ballot. Petitions are available to California registered voters for download at http://www.signforequality.com.
