John Barrowman’s New Music Video Features Gay & Straight Couples

October 6, 2008

Contemporary singer John Barrowman‘s newest video for What About Us comes out in the states on November 17, but has already been released in the UK, which means we all get to watch it now. The song is what Ben and I would term “soooo smooth”. It’s perfectly matched by the video which features two distressed couples (therapy term for you, there) as they struggle to focus on prioritizing their relationship instead of their individual differences. The video features a straight couple and a male/male gay couple mirroring each other’s concerns and efforts throughout the day.

John is Scottish (although he did some growing up in IL) and has worked as an actor and musician. Fans of the BBC will know his acting well. He was 2006’s Stonewall Entertainer of the Year, and recently adopted an adorable puppy named Harris with his partner, Scott Gill.

    What people don’t realize while making jokes on gay people in mainstream cinema or in real life is how hard the society is on them already! Thanks for the article and the link to the video. Great work!
