Anna Wintour is coming out in favor of gay marriage. She is the latest New Yorker to participate in the Human Rights Campaign’s “New Yorkers for Marriage Equality” initiative. “As far as I’m concerned, having the right to say ‘I do’ is as fundamental as the right to vote,” Wintour says in a clip now posted on hrc.org/NY4marriage.

Wintour joins a growing list of personalities to endorse gay marriage, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Sean Avery, Julianna Margulies, Mario Batali, Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, Barbara Bush, Russell Simmons, Joan Rivers, Julianne Moore and Kenneth Cole. “She knows the difference between a passing fad and an enduring brand. Equality is part of the New York brand,” HRC senior New York strategist Brian Ellner said of Wintour. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is hoping to pass gay marriage legislation, and a vote is anticipated before the end of the current legislative session, June 20.

Wintour is not the lone fashion force in the fight. Earlier this month, Marc Jacobs and HRC teamed up for a window display at the Marc by Marc Jacobs boutique at 403 Bleecker Street, featuring a springtime wedding scene with two female mannequins getting hitched. Michael Kors also plans to do windows, while Cole is issuing a special T-shirt for HRC that states “Take your lover up the aisle — Support Marriage Equality.”
