The Juliettes, an all-girl pump rock group out of grunge capitol Seattle, are more than just gay allies (yup, they’re all straight “women who love women,” as they say), they’ve written another gay anthem for the summer (Yes, Gaga, you probably have the bigger one of the season). The Juliettes’ song is called “Hooray, You’re Gay.”
The girls say, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” but rather “Why Ask, Who Cares?” It’s not about gay marriage, it’s about marriage. And they simply state–from their hetero mouths to everyone’s ears–it’s more than okay to be gay.
The net proceeds from “Hooray, You’re Gay” benefit community advocacy programs that support LGBT teens, as well as a 24-hour crisis-intervention hotline. Proceeds will also benefit the It Gets Better campaign. Download the song here, watch the video below, or listen as a part of this week’s Swish Edition episode.
Scott Wallis is co-host of the GayCities/Queerty-sponsored Swish Edition comedy & interview talk show. The June 30 episode celebrates the end of Pride month with the Juliettes as well as discussions about the furrie convention in Pittsburgh, NY gay marriage, Madonna’s new comic book, Anchorage’s ruined Pride parade and much more.
