WATCH: Rosie Perez Fights for Marriage Equality

Rosie Perez teamed up with Fight Back NY to share a message about equal rights and same-sex marriage. "When it comes to equality in this state and in this country, gay people deserve the same rights as everyone else. Period," declares Perez.

At one point, the Boricua actress addresses Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. directly: "I'm extremely disappointed with your position on this matter. With all due respect, sir, your stand respects a lack of justice and equality...Please take note, you are not speaking for the majority of New York Latinos."

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
