Gay Marriage Effort Attracts Different Set of Donors

The New York Times has a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at a fundraising network "whose goal is to legalize same-sex marriage from coast to coast."

"This emerging group of donors is not quite like any other fund-raising network that has supported gay-related issues over the past 40 years. They come from Hollywood, yes, but also from Wall Street and Washington and the corporate world; there are Republicans as well as Democrats; and perhaps most strikingly, longtime gay organizers said, there has been an influx of contributions from straight donors unlike anything they have seen before."
