EA, along with industry giants like Microsoft, Viacom, Google, Zynga, and Ebay, have this week signed an amicus brief declaring their opposition to DOMA, the United States federal law enacted in 1996 which legally defines marriage as solely between a man and woman. Says EA:
While EA's business practices make it easy to doubt their sincerity, in the past they've been supportive of the LGBT community, participating in LGBT Pride Month and marching in the Seattle and San Francisco Gay Pride Parades, even (as Joystiq points out) participating in the "It Gets Better" campaign. As a big ole B in the LGBT, thanks EA. I don't always agree with your actions but I'd totally eat the gay Oreos with you.
