Something we don’t see often enough: New music vid celebrates seniors in long-term relationships

There isn’t exactly an abundance of music videos celebrating senior citizens in long-term same-sex relationships. Examples can be counted on no hands.

That changed Tuesday morning, when LA-based songwriter Tom Goss released his new video for “More Than Temporary,” a reverb-drenched ballad that abandons subtly in favor of unabashed sentimentality.

Featuring cameos by legendary Tales of the City author Armistead Maupin and Christopher Turner, the video’s director, the 5-minute film features footage of real-life couples celebrating their enduring love for one another.

It’s a release that makes it difficult to be completely cynical about Valentine’s Day, hard as we might try.

    Having just crossed 40 years, one+ year married, I’d like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make it possible to be able to do this.
    Unfortunately, cancer just took my (much) better half. Just remember to say “I love you” to each other every night before you go to sleep.

    Just celebrated 33 years and can honestly say we know others! The stable relationships appear to be gay ones, from where we’re sitting :)
