She had a feeling that the hearing would go well, but was still “surprised and relieved” when the court decided to overturn the law.

Jackson Szasz's curator insight, June 21, 11:13 PM
This article from bbc radio speaks on the musician Lil Naz X and his outward expansion it to territory uncharted and how it makes the way for others to do so no matter their sexuality. I believe this is a message not wide speared enough and to have it spread by BBC Radio is fantastic.

Lovelytheband Fights for LGBTQ Rights in New ‘Maybe, I’m Afraid’ Video

Lovelytheband Fights for LGBTQ Rights in New ‘Maybe, I’m Afraid’ Video | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

“Everyone has insecurities and goes through trying times,” singer Mitchy Collins says

Gitit Druyan's curator insight, April 20, 2019 9:03 AM
This scoop is from https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/lovelytheband-fights-for-lgbtq-rights-in-maybe-im-afraid-video-824403/
The Rolling Stone is a monthly magazine. It was founded in San Francisco in 1967, and consider to be one of the most reliable sources of music news. 
This video is dealing with an important subject that many people, (men and women) are struggling with. I think that "Lovelytheband" is doing the right thing by releasing a video telling a story about a man that all his life has been struggling with his sexuality. It will help a lot of young people and maybe even kids to talk about their issues and leave a truthful life. 
Thank you, Lovelytheband. 
Keila Snyder's curator insight, April 21, 2019 10:18 PM
I completely agree with this artists message. It uplifts those being knocked down in not just the entertainment industry but the society of today world wide. This is a credible source and it is used widely in the music industry.

I think this is a very good step forward for the LGBTQ community, and I'm glad its something like Grindr that's doing it. The source is from Grindr itself, which I would consider very reliable, and an information source for those in the audio industry.
