by MK Scott

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis today released this amazing video in support of Referendum 74 in Washington to their track "Same Love" featuring Mary Lambert. "Same Love" is featured on the debut album from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Heist, released on October 9. 

One-half of the couple featured is Seattle-Based Model, William Pontius. "I have always focused on socially conscious projects especially when it comes to my acting career", Pontius told me Exclusively by e-mail.

"The wedding shoot was particularly hard because there was SO much emotion in the room, everyone felt like it was the real deal AND the guy I was marrying kept telling me he was trying not to cry.... Talk about emotional!"

What was the Motivation? "There was a goal besides playing my role in the music video.... It was something much bigger then I." Pontius Continued, "As the LGBT Field Organizer I not only was acting my heart out I was working the room for people to get involved with the Referendum 74 Campaign and spread the APPROVE message beyond just Marriage Equality....!"

What's next for me besides working on living through the elections? "My reality show is "The Next American Gay" is being shopped around this October in France to be picked up internationally where I earned the title "Mr. Gay World USA-Washington" and I am just trying to live up to that", Pontius Added.
