Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein in Same-Sex Marriage Ad

Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Goldman Sachs’ Lloyd Blankfein has become the first major CEO to lend his support to the Americans for Marriage Equality campaign promoting same-sex marriage.

In a 30-second video, Blankfein says, “America’s corporations learned long ago that equality is just good business and is the right thing to do.”

The Human Rights Campaign released the video on Monday via its website and YouTube.

Blankfein’s ad is the twelfth video for the campaign, which has included notable figures including New York Giants’ owner Steve Tisch, actor John Leguizamo and NFL Cleveland Browns’ linebacker Scott Fujita.

Investment bank Goldman Sachs, based in New York City, has a non-discrimination policy in place that includes sexual orientation.

The Human Rights Campaign launched Americans for Marriage Equality in October 2011 with Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, N.J.
