MAN ON MAN will be donating 100% of today’s (16th April 2021) Bandcamp sales to Born Perfect – find out more HERE.
“We wanted It’s So Fun (To Be Gay) to feel organic and warm with a strong, universal message,” says the band. “For the video we aimed to focus on our community. Getting through the hardships of the past year we leaned heavily on what we mean to each other in terms of support and understanding. We were in the middle of launching our Chosen Family project and had just finished linking people up for our pen pal program and sourcing art for our quarterly zine. We thought the best way to exhibit the joy in the song would be to have a video full of our chosen family – friends, peers, and heroes. So, we asked friends to share their love and lives and these queer testimonials are what make up the bulk of the video. Our togetherness and bond is key to moving forward in these times especially and we aimed to capture that bond and essence, particularly with Gay Pride 2021 on the horizon. It felt fitting to donate the launch-day’s sales to Born Perfect, which is a non-profit whose mission is to end conversion therapy.”
The video features JD Samson, Patty Schemel (Hole), John Cameron Mitchell, Jibz Cameron (Dynasty Handbag), Heklina and more.
MAN ON MAN‘s self-titled debut album is set for release on 7th May 2021 via Polyvinyl Record Co. and Big Scary Monsters, available to pre-order HERE.
The duo have also launched their LGBTQIA+ Community Project, Chosen Family, an extension of MAN ON MAN to connect their community in meaningful ways. First up, is their worldwide pen pal project and newsletter, find out more HERE.
