Normalizing the different while having plenty of fun

Walking into the grocery store with my same sex spouse, we speak and yell out to each other about what food items we need for the week, “Do we have enough oatmeal left? What about apples?”

Although seen as an ordinary task for heterosexual couples, I am quite conscious that, as a gay couple, we are seen as somewhat of an anomaly. That is especially true in areas where most people rarely see gay couples going about their daily life...

...One day, when my spouse and I go shopping, we won’t be seen as an oddity. Instead gay couples will go about their daily lives like heterosexual couples do, without unwanted stares. Society will understand the gender of the person you love is totally irrelevant.

Help create a more accepting society through the power of music.
