Marriage Equality USA (MEUSA) released a YouTube video about marriage equality this Valentine’s Day. The project is called SHE4MarriageEquality (SHE4ME) and it is a five minute video starring Gabrielle Christian, Nicole Pacent, Mike C. Manning, Steve Tyler, and features several cameos by actors who have portrayed seminal gay roles.


Scenes are paired to a song called “She” by singer-songwriter Jen Foster. Foster, who appears in the film as “The Wedding Singer”, wrote the song over a decade ago – “She” became a favorite within the lesbian community, often used in commitment ceremonies. The song received a makeover by music producer Eve Nelson who reworked the musical arrangement and re-recorded new vocals with Foster.


Acclaimed Lesbian filmmaker Nicole Conn ¾ known for her groundbreaking lesbian films Claire Of The Moon (1992), Elena Undone (2010) and A Perfect Ending (2012) starring Barbara Niven and Jessica Clarke (vampire goddess “Lilith” HBO True Blood) ¾ directed the made-for-YouTube PSA. In January, Wolfe Video named Conn the #1 LGBT Feature film Writer/Director of all time.


Wedding scenes were filmed at Andaz West Hollywood, where actual same-sex weddings have been taking place lately. The hotel will run a teaser clip of the video on TVs in all 239 of its guestrooms.


Marriage Equality USA (MEUSA), the largest grassroots organization in the United States working towards legal recognition of same-sex marriage in all fifty states, partnered with Melke to produce this social project.


Brian Silva, Executive Director for Marriage Equality USA says: "Music and video projects like this have the power to impact millions of viewers by showing the love and commitment that is celebrated and protected by passing civil marriage equality for LGBTQ families."


Melke brings experience in LGBT media and music-centric projects to the table, they currently represents Jen Foster and they are producing Nicole Conn’s next film. Next, Melke is teaming up with WingSpan Pictures and GLSEN to produce the feature length "Love Is All You Need", in support of anti-bullying.
