This Music Video by Great Caesar is Empowering and Uplifting

Indie Band Great Caesar released a music video (funded via Kickstarter) for its song Don't Ask Me Why, and it is a heart-wrenching video that sends an important message about love and being gay.

The video begins with the blossoming interracial romance between a young boy and girl in their teens during the 1960s. The couple is attacked by racist jocks as the girl screams for them to stop. The video then transitions to modern times and uses the previous story to bring to light the pain endured by gay teens today. In an obvious parallel, one teen is brutally beaten by jocks after finding a racial slur taped to his gym locker. Great Caesar created a moving piece of music and film that really illustrates the need to end discrimination against the LGBTQ community.
