Voice for Equality: Chris Evans

Chris Evans is an American actor. He is perhaps best known for his roles in the films Not Another Teen Movie and as the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four films. His other film credits include: The Perfect Score, Cellular, London, Sunshine, Street Kings, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond and Push with Dakota Fanning and Camilla Belle. Learn more here.

It was announced on October 14, 2009 that Chris Evans would be participating in the Love Unites Shepard Fairey Equality Project, a new marriage equality advocacy project for which 100 celebrities would be signing their names and customizing a Shepard Fairey print titled Defend Equality - Love Unites. Fairey, whose Obama Hope print became the iconic emblem of President Obama’s 2008 campaign, was approached by FAIR, an LGBT grassroots marriage equality organization, to commission an image that would help unite and inspire the marriage equality movement. Fairey: “I am proud to contribute the Defend Equality Love Unites image to the fight for marriage equality, and commend FAIR for putting this image to good use." The signed prints were sold in online auctions through December 9, 2009. [Link]
