US indie-pop sensations Fun. have revealed plans to launch a marriage equality organisation, claiming being heterosexual makes their voices stronger in the ongoing debate over marriage equality.
The band, who are currently in the UK Top Ten with their international hit 'We Are Young' revealed plans for the project in a new interview with The Washington Post.
"Being part of a band of three straight men, we felt there was an inherent power in the fact that we aren't gay, and yet we still care and we have a voice -- there's a responsibility there," says guitarist Jack Antonoff. "There are moments in history where it's vital [to have a voice] and anyone that is not standing up for the LGBT community is a huge part of what's holding them back."
"We're firm believers in the idea that if you’re not talking about it, you’re part of the problem," he adds. "We realize we have an audience, and it would be a real shame to waste it."
