WATCH: Backstreet Boys Release Pro-Gay Music Video

The Backstreet Boys have, um, quit playing games and released a socially-conscious music video for their new single “In a World Like This” which offers a pro-gay marriage. Toward the end of the clip a lesbian couple is seen taking each other’s hands overjoyed watching a television report on the overturning of Prop. 8.

The video premiered on ABC’s Good Morning America today. Band member A.J. McLean explained, “The concept of the video is based on the song, which tells a story of how love conquers all and ‘in a world like this’ that we live in, with all the craziness and negative energy that can go around, with real love you can overcome anything.”

This marks just another demonstration of the band’s support for its many LGBT fans. Earlier this summer BSB performed during London Pride at popular venue G-A-Y.

      Nice to see the Boys back insync, ok I’ll stop now. I detected some auto-tuning, for shame! Not a bad video, just not as good as I remember them being.

      I’ve given my sisters grief about their BSB worship, but then the ending with the lesbian couple brought the message of the song around, and I don’t know, I just ended up thinking they didn’t have to make a statement like that but they did. It’s very decent of them and they have my respect and gratitude for it.

      I saw a tiny image of two men together on a TV screen – if you blinked, you would have missed it.

      How about the 2 women holding hands in the foreground?

      How is this song any more or less pro-gay than the BSB’s entire musical output?
