In Final Push, Pride Agenda Releases Another Ad

ALBANY—Continuing to lobby aggressively for same-sex marriage, the Empire State Pride Agenda unveiled a new television ad this morning, featuring a Rochester family with a gay son and straight daughter.
The ad shows a kitchen table discussion with Karen Schuster and her children Luke and Jessica, in which she says Luke should have “the same rights as other people.”
Josh Meltzer, a spokesman for the Pride Agenda, said it was not yet determined which markets the ad would air in or how much they would spend. Their last television advertisement is airing in Albany, Rochester and Syracuse.
The ad lands amid a final push for the same-sex marriage bill, which is not yet scheduled for a vote in the State Senate.
