Today, All Out, the leading international gay rights organization, and breakthrough artist Scarlett Rabe launched a powerful video featuring images that highlight the global work of the All Out community set to Rabe?s debut single ?Battle Cry?.
The video, a partnership between All Out and Scarlett Rabe, a straight ally and All Out member, is composed of content submitted by All Out members over the last several years, from campaigns around anti-gay laws in Russia and Uganda to anti-LGBT violence in Brazil.
?We were inspired by the message of ?Battle Cry? and jumped at the opportunity to work with Scarlett,? said Andre Banks, Executive Director of All Out. ?All Out is a huge global community fighting for full equality, each of us giving our time and talents in a different way. Scarlett?s song is an incredible contribution to the movement and the perfect backdrop to highlight the incredible work of the All Out community.?
?Throughout history, people and governments have used religion, nationality, skin color or other hateful excuses to justify violence and discrimination against human beings. Today, it is still a crime to be gay in 77 countries,? said Scarlett Rabe. ?The inspiring work of All Out is crucial to changing the perspectives of these people and misguided policies of these governments. I?m honored to be able to add my voice to All Out?s exclamation that everyone deserves the basic human right to live and to love.? Preview Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fU83sTzXfSw
