"Love is love is love is love is love is love..." - Lin-Manual Miranda
This video is a powerful visual representation of what it's like to want to express what you feel toward someone in public but can't. I realize that there are many heterosexuals in the world that won't partake in public displays of affection but this is different. It's not that we, as gay men and women, don't want to; in some instances it can prove to be deadly or violent. So you see the person that means the world to you for the first time that day and you want to hold them, but you can't. So you go through it all on the inside. You process your feelings and you are still left longing and wanting more. This happens every day, every hour; around the world and until we are all equal - this will continue to happen.
So thank you X Ambassadors for this beautiful video. They say art reflects and represents life and this is a beautiful reminder that while we may not be able to love openly and freely, there are those people in this world that are more than willing to help us make it a little more steady.
