Brad Pitt has agreed to donate US$100,000 to help the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) raise money for its efforts to support same-sex marriage initiatives in several states.

The nation’s largest gay rights group announced Wednesday that Pitt agreed to match contributions from the group’s members up to US$100,000.

In an e-mail to members of the HRC, Pitt wrote that it is “unbelievable” that people’s relationships will be put to a vote on Election Day.

Same-sex marriage will be on the ballot in Maryland, Maine, Minnesota and Washington state.

The Washington, DC-based HRC says it has spent US$8 million to push for marriage equality for gays and lesbians over the past two years, including US$5 million in the four ballot measures this year.

布萊德‧彼特(簡稱「小布」)已同意捐出十萬美元給同志平權團體「HRC」,支持該團體於美國多個州,在推動同性婚姻倡議上所做的努力。

這個美國最大同志人權團體週三宣布,小布同意,只要有「HRC」會員捐助,他就會跟進,最多將會捐出十萬美元。

在一封給「HRC」會員的電郵,小布寫道,對於民眾的感情關係,將在選舉日訴諸表決,簡直是「難以置信」。

同性婚姻法案將在馬里蘭州、緬因州、明尼蘇達州,與華盛頓州進行表決。

總部設在華府的「HRC」表示,該團體過去兩年已花費八百萬美元在推動男同志與女同志的婚姻平權上,其中的五百萬美元則是用在關於今年這四州的投票措施上。
