Celebrities aren't shy about voicing their support for the LGBTQ+ community—particularly when it comes to gay marriage. From Lady Gaga to Jay-Z, Daniel Radcliffe to Oprah Winfrey, the stars have taken to social media and real life to show their love for equality. But that's not to say they're the only ones who can make an impact—we know plenty of straight celebs who are just as vocal about their stance on the issue.
Actress Kerry Washington has made it no secret that she's an avid supporter of LGBTQ+ rights. She's called for an end to discrimination against the community in the past and even posed with her husband in their wedding attire to promote equal rights for same-sex couples.
Singer Miley Cyrus is a staunch supporter of LGBT rights and has donated to the Human Rights Campaign's National Marriage Fund. She's also teamed up with Instagram to help spread the word about the fight for marriage equality and has spoken out about her own experiences with the community.
Hollywood producer and actor Brad Pitt has long been a champion of LGBTQ+ rights, even going so far as to say that he and then-partner Angelina Jolie wouldn't get married until same-sex marriage was legalized in the US. Pitt has also made a big financial contribution to the cause, donating $100,000 to HRC's National Marriage Fund in 2012.
Actress Emma Watson—best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films—is a passionate advocate for LGBT rights. The actress is a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and has used her platform to speak out against the use of homophobic language. She's also been a major supporter of the AIDS Foundation and has been active in fighting for the rights of transgender people.
