Expedia rolls out a new marriage equality web-ad featuring a father recounting his path toward acceptance of his lesbian daughter:

Expedia is based in Washington, where Referendum 74 could overturn legislatively-approved marriage equality. By the way, those who watched the first season of The Real L Word will recognize Jill and Nikki – the father in the video is Jill's dad. Update from a reader:

Just to be clear, the pro-marriage equality vote is to Approve Referendum 74. While it is true that a possible outcome of the vote on this referendum could be a reversal of the legislatively-approved marriage equality, Washington voters should be clear that this is a referendum we want to approve.  Ballot initiatives and referenda can be tricky for some voters to follow, so it is always important very clear to connect the approve / reject vote to the resulting outcome.
