Marie Osmond on Marriage Equality

As a kid, I would grab the hairbrush and sing along with Donny and Marie: “I’m a little bit country – I’m a little bit rock-n-roll …” I loved the Osmonds so much – and now my love is finally returned – by Marie Osmond at least, who, surprise! has a lesbian daughter:

In an interview with Los Angeles radio station KOST 103.5 on Monday, Marie Osmond confirmed that her oldest daughter Jessica is a lesbian — calling her a “magnificent woman” and stating that she supports her daughter and believes in equal rights for gays and lesbians under the law.

Osmond’s public support of her daughter is significant, because Osmond is the highest profile Mormon thus far to come out in support of marriage equality — or at least giving gay and lesbian couples the same rights afforded to heterosexual couples.

Donny’s not so open minded, writing that he does not support marriage equality. I wonder what his niece thinks about that.
