Nonprofit same-sex marriage advocacy group Freedom To Marry launched their "Southerners For Freedom to Marry" campaign a few weeks ago, and now they're asking Southern supporters of equality to sign a pledge. The $1 million campaign is designed to grow support for equal marriage in the South.

A March 5th Washington Post/ABC News poll found that 50 percent of Southerners support same-sex marriage and 42 percent remain opposed.

Lance Bass, the Mississippi-born N'Sync member and host of Sirius OutQ's "Dirty Pop" radio show, appears with his fiancee Michael Turchin in the campaign's latest video.

So far, the campaign doesn't have a Tennessee co-chair, but it does have co-chairs in Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.
