Ready for Your 15 Minutes of Fame? Are you willing to give interviews to the media? (V)
Are you you were willing to give interviews to the press regarding marriage equality? If so, please make sure you are a member of Marriage Equality USA - you can click here to join. Then, please email Christine Allen firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following info:
