Barrymore & Rossum Join Gay Activists At Rally

Actresses DREW BARRYMORE and EMMY ROSSUM were among the stars who joined thousands of activists of the streets of Hollywood on Tuesday night (26May09) to protest the ongoing ban on gay marriage in California.
State officials voted to uphold the ban, which came into effect in November (08), on Tuesday morning - and the response from gay rights protesters was both immediate and impressive.
Thousands hit the streets of West Hollywood to voice their anger and frustration.
Joining Barrymore and Rossum were Star Trek actor George Takei, Kelly Osbourne, Sophia Bush and comedienne Kathy Griffin.
Singer/actress Deborah Gibson, who also took part in the peaceful protest, said, "I was raised a good Catholic girl and nowhere in church do I remember it ever being an issue for everybody to be treated equally. I can’t believe it’s 2009 and this is still an issue."
Like many of the protesters in the crowd, Kelly Osbourne was also left feeling angered by the court’s decision.
Brit Osbourne added, "It goes without saying that if you love someone, you should be able to marry them no matter."
