Cindy McCain, the wife of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), joined a number of celebrity supporters of the NoH8 Campaign -- originally designed to protest the passage of Proposition 8, California's anti-same sex marriage amendment -- in participating
in a public service announcement
about the bullying LGBT people face.
Ironically, her husband is currently at the center
of the battle
to prevent Democrats from repealing the military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy (despite the results of the Pentagon's study that shows it would have little effect
) during the upcoming lame duck session of Congress.
Cindy McCain and the other celebrities appearing in the PSA say unequivocally that government policies like DADT, the inability for same sex couples to marry and, in some states, the restrictions same sex couples face in adopting all contribute to a culture in which the intolerance, hatred and mockery of LGBT people remains acceptable.
