"We Are Young" singers Fun have revealed that they plan to set up a not for profit organisation focused on marriage equality for the LGBT community.
Guitarist Jack Antonoff told the Washington Post, "We're firm believers in the idea that if you’re not talking about it, you’re part of the problem. We realise we have an audience, and it would be a real shame to waste it."
He previously told Spinner, "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.
"There are moments in history where it's vital and anyone that is not standing up for the LGBT community is a huge part of what's holding them back."
Antonoff previously wrote about the issue on the Huffington Post. He wrote, "As allies, we have to prepare ourselves to step into the fire when necessary, even - and especially - when said fire is merely a still-lit cigarette tossed carelessly onto the street.
"Of course, the majority of us would speak up in the face of outrageous bigotry, but do we speak up in a social situation when someone casually refers to something as "gay"? If we don't, we are standing with the homophobes whom we are quietly fighting."
