GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis speaks to the Hollywood Reporter about the Grammys' same-sex couple weddings

GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about a historic television segment at the 2014 Grammys on Sunday, where Queen Latifah officiated the weddings of 33 couples, both gay and straight, while the hit single, "Same Love," was performed by Macklemore, Mary Lambert and Trombone Shorty. Madonna joined the performance with her song, "Open Your Heart." 

"When such a critically acclaimed and popular rap artist puts marriage equality center stage at one of the biggest events of the year, it is the latest in a long line of signs that our nation not only accepts, but celebrates the love and commitment of gay couples today," said GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis (who is married to Kristen Henderson of the band Antigone Rising). "Macklemore and Ryan Lewis aren't only talented musicians, but are setting the bar high for our allies around the country today."
