Looks like change is coming slowly but surely in the Hip Hop community when it comes to gay acceptance. Right on the heels of Frank Ocean’s coming out, indie rapper Murs features a gay romance in his music video for “Animal Style.”
In the video, Murs plays Jason, a high school student who is carrying on a secret love affair with Roderick, a fellow classmate. Unable to accept who he really is, Jason takes matters into his own hands, leading to a tragic ending for both young men.
The video is very balanced in showing the pain and isolation that results from those who live a double life. Kudos to Murs for showing love to the LGBT community.
