Love Music, Hate Homophobia

Love Music, Hate Homophobia

Read it and participate please!

 

Hello everyone,
It is 2012, and you never hear a same-sex love song on the radio. Why? Because you can’t have a hit singing one, unless you’re Katy Perry kissing a girl.

Homophobia is still a problem and musicians should make a stand against ignorance, because music is one of the most powerful tools for change we have.

May 17th is International Day Against Homophobia (homophobiaday.org).

Here is what I propose:
Musicians should record same-sex love songs and post them online between now and May 17th.

The easiest way to do this is to take a love song normally sung by a member of the opposite sex, and cover it without changing the words.

It’s a simple thing that says: “I don’t care if you think I’m gay, because homophobia is bullshit.”

I have started a facebook page for this at www.facebook.com/musosagainsthate. Please join the page and post your songs there.
