Recently, XXL Feshman Macklemore (and his producer Ryan Lewis) delivered a video for “Same Love,” in which Macklemore muses about the danger and pervasiveness of gay stereotypes and points out how no one has freedom until everyone is free.
In the video, we see the entire story of a gay man’s life: From birth to childhood to falling in love to getting married to dying with his husband at his side. It’s even more powerful because it’s so well made. (The last 2 minutes, when the characters get older, are especially impressive.)
***I saw Macklemore in concert for the first time last night and not being super familiar with his music, I was surprisingly impressed and entertained. The crowd was hyped as Mack and Ryan Lewis rocked the show.
