'Girls' Creator Won't Marry Until Her Lesbian Sister Can

Lena Dunham, the creator of the hit TV series Girls, says she won’t marry her boyfriend until marriage equality is realized in all 50 states.


Girls creator Lena Dunham reaffirmed her promise that she would not marry her boyfriend — Fun singer Jack Antonoff — until marriage equality becomes a reality in every state across the country.

“We’re not against marriage, but I want to wait until it’s something — my sister’s gay and it just doesn’t feel good to me to do something she can’t do. She can do it in some places but not all places,” the actress said during a recent radio interview with Howard Stern.

Dunham began wearing a diamond ring last year but denied she and Antonoff were engaged when she was questioned about it, vowing at the time that she would not marry until same-sex couples had the same right in all 50 states.

In addition to creating the hit TV series Girls, Dunham has been busy crafting additional LGBT-inclusive entertainment.

She announced last month that she working on a documentary series that tells the story of a suitmaker who designs clothing with transgender people in mind.

The series, which will run on HBO, is titled Three Suits and highlights the New York tailor Bindle & Keep, which has earned respect among New York’s LGBT population for its trans-friendly practice.
