Graphic Language: Rapper Murs “Animal Style” Video Show Support to Marriage Equality with a Gay Kiss (VIDEO)

In a display of support of the LGBTQ community, rapper Murs includes a gay kiss on his latest music video, Animal Style.

Huffington Post’s Gay Voices featured the video with this excerpt:

On his YouTube page, the rapper describes his motivation for producing “Animal Style,” which he ultimately deems a “love song.”

“‘Animal Style’ is a song I did for many reasons,” Murs explains. “The first was to be an advocate for people close to me who are out, and those who have yet to come out…I wanted to challenge the listener to ask themselves: Is the love shared by two people of the same gender, really that different than the love I have for my partner of the opposite sex?”

He then goes on to note, “And finally, I just felt it was crucial for some of us in the hip hop community to speak up on the issues of teen suicide, bullying, and the overall anti-homosexual sentiment that exist within hip hop culture. I felt so strongly about these issues and this song that I had to do a video that would command some attention, even if it makes some viewers uncomfortable.”
