Brad Pitt has teamed up with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) to support gay marriage and has pledged to donate up to $100,000 to match all donations made to the campaign today.
Several months ago, he and partner Angelina Jolie were called hypocrites because they announced their engagement even though they said publicly that they would not marry until all people in the U.S. had the right to be married.
Jolie is publicly bi, and reportedly he is too but not publicly.
Here is the link to donate to HRC’s campaign for LGBT marriage equality: https://secure3.convio.net/hrc/site/Donation2?df_id=24187&24187.donation=form1&autologin=true&utm_term=link1&JServSessionIdr004=87npvn7ug2.app341a
Pitt wrote the following text in an email letter sent to HRC supporters:
It’s unbelievable to me that people’s lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days.
In Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington, voters will go to the polls to decide if gay and lesbian couples – our friends and neighbors – are worthy of the same protections as everyone else.
But that’s the system we have and I’m not going to back down from the fight for loving and committed couples to have the ability to marry. Especially when groups like the Human Rights Campaign are fighting these battles day-in and day-out.
So, here’s what I’m going to do. If you make a contribution to these ballot measure campaigns in the next 24 hours, I’ll double it – every dollar of the way, up to $100,000.
This is our last chance to make a difference. If you’re like me, you don’t want to have to ask yourself on the day after the election, what else could I have done?
Every person’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is enshrined in our country’s Declaration of Independence, but powerful, well-funded groups are flooding the airwaves with lies trying to take away those rights from certain people… and we can’t stand for it.
Let’s make history together.
Contribute to HRC’s National Marriage Fund right now, just as I’ve done, and together we’ll put our country on the path to the day when there are no second-class citizens.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
