We’re of the mind that whether it’s two Sapphic supermodels or a 69-year-old fashion icon and his 21-year-old underwear-model boytoy, any flavor of love makes the world a more beautiful place. And while, since the summer, New Yorkers have been able to wed whoever they damn well please, the state is one of only six to recognize same-sex marriage. But last night, at the Calvin Klein flagship in Manhattan, a group of New York heavy-hitters including Anna Wintour, Robert DeNiro, Neil Patrick Harris, and Francisco Costa gathered to launch Americans for Marriage Equality, an campaign to promote equal marriage rights nationwide. Spearheaded by the Human Rights Campaign, the movement is an expansion of New Yorkers for Marriage Equality, which successfully rallied support for same-sex marriage in the Empire State.
In addition to the well-heeled crowd—i.e. Hamish Bowles, Sally Singer and even professional gala-goer Courtney Love—guests at the launch got to check out a specially commissioned sculpture by Nathaniel Rackowe. In case your invite got lost in the mail, you can check out the installation through January 3, and don’t forget to throw in your support for the cause here.
