Tuc Watkins on Gay Marriage

ONE LIFE TO LIVE and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Tuc Watkins spoke with Greg in Hollywood about gay marriage at the GLAAD Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday.

It’s a beautiful, metaphorical picture that there’s a bridge in the middle of America called Iowa that is connecting the East Coast and the West Coast in progressive mentalities from the center of the country. I think it’s a lesson to all of us. We think we’re so progressive out here in California and there’s still plenty of money coming in from the Morman church and from the state of Utah to support something like Proposition 8 and deny marriage equality and then all of a sudden out of nowhere, that little state of Iowa stands up and says, ‘We disagree. We think what is right is equality for all.
