Guest Post: Opportunity for the YouTube community to support marriage equality



The following is guest post by Michael Buckley, creator and host of the What the Buck Show since 2007.

Dear YouTube friends, I want to bring your attention to The Four 2012, an organization supporting marriage equality efforts in four key states this fall -- Maryland, Maine, Minnesota and Washington.  

For marriage equality, momentum is on our side! The Four 2012 is working to give everyone across the country a chance to support marriage equality efforts in these four states. They are looking to use social media to get the word out, and they need creative and compelling videos to use in their efforts. I thought it would be a good idea to reach out to the YouTube Creator community. With enough of us talking, Google+-ing, tweeting and creating and sharing videos about it, we can pass marriage equality in three states and stop a gay marriage ban in another!!!

The Four 2012 is looking for creators to make videos and spread the word, and they plan to feature some of these videos in their social media campaigns. Even if you have never made a YouTube video, this is the perfect time to start!

They need creators from any of the four states, but ANYONE, ANYWHERE can get involved. Simply make and upload a video about what marriage equality may mean for you, your friends, or your family. Be authentic! Then, at the end of the video include the following: "Visit TheFour2012.com to learn more and get involved." When you have created your video, send the link to admin@thefour2012.com!

There are only about 40 days left until the election! I believe in the POWER of the YouTube community and all the amazing things we can do! Turn on your cameras! Spread the word! I know we can do this together!!!

Your friend,
