"Same Love" is such a beautiful song.

    I'm probably just really out of the loop but I've never heard this song until tonight in my roommate's car.



    She said it was played on "Ellen."

    (On a different note, I haven't told my roommates that I like dudes...do you think the fact that she likes this song is a good indicator that she would be cool if I told her? I don't like hiding things from my roommates but I'm also kinda scurred icon_neutral.gif haha. Only a handful of people know...)

    OK. I have to confess that I just boo-hoo-ed through this whole clip.

    Very well done.

    OP...
    First of all, THANK YOU for posting this clip! It was awesome!

    I think you should come out to your friend who knows this song already. Most likely she has an idea. As for your roommates? I would. You are 27!!! You can't live/hide who you are. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Good luck. But again, thanks for posting this! icon_biggrin.gif

    1. I'd never heard this before. It's lovely. Yeah, I cried like a little girl.

    2. When I was younger (like, my 30s), I told people to come out, to everybody everywhere and let the chips fall where they might. But now, my advice is: Come out when you're ready, when you're pretty sure you're strong enough to face the consequences; because, frankly, it might not be pretty. Good luck, young'un. icon_smile.gif

    Just posted this vid on my fb, and recently discovered Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (look up Thrift Shop it makes thrifting look luxurious and sure to be a hipster club banger) But if your roomie likes the song/vid and likes Ellen chances are she'll be more than accepting but excited to have a gay roomie

    Thanks for sharing the video, OP. what a beautiful song and message.

    Meanwhile, you should definitely share who you are with your roommate (and friends). They will love you no matter what.

    At the end of the day, what other people connect with is your humanity, not a facade of perfection. Good luck!
