One of my personal favourite stars of Broadway and the West End, the gorgeous Gavin Creel, has co-written and released a single entitled NOISE, a call-to-arms anthem in the name of Equality:
If we go quiet,
How will he know he’s not alone?
If you won’t riot,
Don’t bother coming home…
With the release of the single and video, Gavin states:
“Gay rights are human rights, and if we want things to change, we all need to take action. We can’t stay frustrated, quiet and complacent. We have to be willing to make some noise. This song aims to get us all fired up: gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and anyone in between. I’m ready to welcome in a new age of full legal protection in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states for ALL citizens, and I believe we will get there. But the men and women who have the power to change the laws so that we are all represented and protected equally need to hear from us, NOW. This song calls out to people who believe in equality, regardless of sexual orientation or identity; people who are ready to take action, use their voices and be heard. Until we have equal rights all across this great country, we will play it as long and as loud as we have to. So, let’s go…. Get the tune, turn it up, and let’s make some NOISE!”
