Indiana Gubernatorial Hopeful and 'Survivor' Contestant Rupert Boneham Speaks Out for Marriage Equality: VIDEO

Boneham

Former Survivor contestant Rupert Boneham is running for governor of Indiana. In the following clip, he speaks out for marriage equality.

"I've been married to my wife for 14 wonderful years. Like many couples out there, we've had our hardships, we've had our trials, but nothing like the LGBT has to go through. It pains me to see my family and friends blocked from the same rights, privileges, protections that my wife and I are granted, just because we are legally married. What does it say to the youth of Indiana when a whole segment of our society is treated like second-class citizens?"

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I must say I'm very pleasantly surprised by this. When I heard Rupert was running I didn't think he would end up being an ally. Go Rupert!!

  4. He's a lone voice in Hoosierland. Such anti-gaydom going on there.
    Kudos for him!

  5. FINALLY, a reason for me to vote for a Governor. Usually they're all the same here.
