Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon and skateboarding legend Tony Hawk are the latest celebrities to jump in the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) Americans for Marriage Equality effort.

“People ask me all the time, ‘What advice do I have for kids who want to become pro-skaters?’ I always say pretty much the same thing: work hard and follow your heart,” Hawk says in the video. “That’s how I feel about marriage equality. We all deserve to follow our hearts.”

Right now same-sex couples can legally marry in 19 states and the District of Columbia and 31 states still have a law restricting marriage to one man and one woman.

“While marriage might not be my thing,” Sarandon said in her video, “if it’s your thing, you damn well ought to be able to have it equally and unequivocally.”

Singer Demi Lovato was the original face of the HRC’s re-launch of the marriage campaign.

“I believe that love comes in all different shapes, sizes and colors, so whether you’re LGBT or straight, your love is valid, beautiful and an incredible gift,” she said. “So let’s protect love and strengthen the institution of marriage by allowing loving, caring and committed same-sex couples to legally marry.”

According to ABC News/Washington Post, 77 percent of adults under 30 are for marriage equality, and Republican support of marriage equality is at 40 percent, an all-time high.
