Celebrities on both sides of the aisle having been weighing in on marriage equality.

From The Atlantic Wire

"On Monday, former New York Giants wide receiver David Tyree briefly became the focus of the gay marriage story when he showed up in Albany to voice his objections to legalizing gay marriage. Now the celebrities on the other side of the debate are out in force, including celebrity chef Mario Batali who is in Albany and willing to talk to "anybody who will listen to me," according to the New York Observer, about why the stalled bill should be brought to the floor. He hopes to have better luck than the other boldfaced names who have tried to turn the tide in the debate."

The Atlantic Wire has the scoop on Lance Bass, Cynthia Nixon, Michael Strahan, and Sean Avery, with videos.
