It’s not news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie promised not to marry until all Americans had the right to marry. We admire them for using their celebrity – as well as making huge donations to marriage equality organizations – to bring attention to the injustice of marriage laws in the United States. We consider them to be wedocrats in the sense that they believe in and have fought for gay American marriage rights when they don’t have to – they have worldwide visibility, and used it to fight for justice, putting the rights of others ahead of their own freedom to marry because they understood they were in a position to help. We salute you, Angelina and Brad, and wish you well in your own long-awaited union.
