Story behind the song
I sang at a rally for gay marriage in Sydney, Australia, and heard a moving speech by a man who's name I don't remember. I had not long before then, on the plane from San Francisco to Melbourne, watched the wonderful movie about Harvey Milk. I must admit I had previously had a bit of a disinterested feeling about the whole idea of gay marriage. After seeing Milk and attending this rally I realized my mistake. Gay marriage is actually, literally a life or death issue for a lot of people. I hope this song might help some people understand that a little better.
