I’ve written a couple articles about Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ song “Same Love” now and it gets me EVERY TIME. No seriously, it makes me all teary eyed and weepy in the office because I’m overwhelmed at how beautiful the message is. Ben Haggerty performed the song with Mary Lambert on Ellen, bringing the audience to their feet.
Before they performed, Ellen, who is married to Portia de Rossi, told the audience how much the song means to her and why everyone should care about the artists: “No other artist in hip hop history have ever taken a stand for marriage equality like they have.”
I love one of the top rated comments on YouTube:
This song made me come out, don’t be afraid. I’m only 19 and it went really fucking good, I didn’t get any negativity from my family or friends, I got support and acceptance all around. But take it slowly, start with your best friends, then some of your family members, once I did that I made a status on facebook. Just make sure you word it out right. I only did that 2 months ago, and I’ve never been more happy, just remember in the end you’re doing it for yourself
