Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Christopher Meloni has joined the fight for gay rights in New York by filming a public service announcement (PSA) supporting same-sex marriage.
The actor, who plays a tough-talking detective in the hit cop drama, shows his softer side as he is seen talking about love in the video clip, which backs the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) New Yorkers for Marriage Equality drive.
He says, "I believe in love, in family and in fairness. That's why I'm a New Yorker for marriage equality. Already, five states and the District of Columbia have marriage equality. It's time for New York to lead again. Join me in supporting New Yorkers for Marriage Equality."
