Yeah, Macklemore seems like a pretty cool dude and I love Same Love, I appreciate his support. I guess it’s just kind of sad that he gets all of the attention when LGBTQ people have been saying this for years? Like imagine a journalist comes into your town, watches you for awhile, and then goes off and writes a book and makes millions. Does he deserve recognition for writing a good book? Sure, maybe he’s technically a really good writer. But ultimately, he’s an outsider. You’ve been risking yourself, your health, your livelihood all along. And let’s say you wrote a book saying the same things, but no one would publish it because “No one will relate to/listen to you because you’re from X Town!” And this random dude comes in and says “This is terrible, we should do something about this!” And everyone acts like this is totally new information, all the awards to him! Naturally, you might be wondering where the support was for you and the people who actually live in your community and do this every day.
