Steven Spielberg and his wife, Kate Capshaw, are the latest members of the entertainment industry to donate money in the fight against Proposition 8, the Californian referendum seeking to ban same-sex marriages.

Spielberg has donated $100,000 towards the campaign, which follows Brad Pitt's donation of the same amount last week.

“By writing discrimination into our state constitution, Proposition 8 seeks to eliminate the right of each and every citizen in our state to marry regardless of sexual orientation,” said Spielberg and Capshaw in a statement. “Such discrimination has no place in California’s constitution, or any other.”

Same-sex marriage is legal in only two US states – California and Massachusetts, where gay weddings have been legal since 2004. If passed, Proposition 8 would amend the California Constitution with a new section that would read “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”

More information on the campaign can be found at www.votenoonproposition8.com.
