Gitit Druyan's curator insight, April 20, 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.

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.

This is a touching piece on oppression of the community and I honestly cannot wait to see it. I admire that she fought just as hard for the film production and distribution as her characters are fighting for their love. Yes this is a credible source and no it is not widely used in the 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.
