Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ new touching video for “Same Love” chronicles the life of a gay man from his birth to his marriage to his death. The seven-minute video was created in support of marriage equality and literally makes me want to bawl (in a good way).
The beautiful video, which was directed by Ryan Lewis, Jon Jon Augustavo and Tricia Davis, encourages love and acceptance over hatred. It’s a strong, goosebump-worthy message that everyone needs to see. It’s especially pertinent in the rap industry, where homophobia is commmon.
The song features singer Mary Lambert and will be on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ debut album The Heist, out on Oct. 9.
They write on YouTube: “We support civil rights, and hope WA State voters will APPROVE REF 74 and legalize marriage equality.” You can visit Music For Marriage Equality for more information.
