There's a fun-loving band called A Great Big World, and they have a song that says we are a little gay (and straight).
According to them, they play music in a "joyous kind of way." I have to agree.
This is their handsome band photo. See? Totally fun-loving.
They came up with a song called "Everyone Is Gay."
Because, well, maybe we are all just somewhere in the middle of gay and straight. The song is catchy, so get ready to be hooked.
In a nutshell, it says if you're gay, that's OK!
If you're straight, well, that's great!
Because we are all probably sitting on a scale somewhere between straightness and gayness.
There's no real way of knowing exactly where someone else sits on the sexuality scale unless they tell us.
Sexuality is a personal thing, and it can even change from time to time.
This song was written specifically for Everyone Is Gay, which has a great mission:
The founders, Kristin Russo and Dannielle Owens-Reid — who asked A Great Big World to write the gayest song ever— say they want "to improve the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning/Queer (LGBTQ) youth using a three-pronged approach: providing honest advice to these youth while keeping them laughing; talking to students across the country in an effort to create caring, compassionate school environments; and working with parents of LGBTQ kids to help foster an ongoing dialogue and deeper understanding."
We are all just stuck in the middle, and coming out is a process for kids, families, and adults. If you'd like some more information about coming out, check out Everyone Is Gay.
