Popular LDS musician Alex Boyé has released a new single and accompanying music video called “We All Bleed the Same.” On Facebook, Boyé dedicated to the music video to anyone who feels different or is small. He wrote:
I dedicate this song to any Latter-day Saint who experiences same-sex attraction who often feel caught in between two worlds, and have received hurtful and insensitive things said to them by other saints.
I dedicate this song to the LGBT community who have to deal with emotional challenges at school college, at work and in their families.
I dedicate this song to people of disability who have and are still being bullied & mistreated for being who they are.
I dedicate this song to every person of color who is viewed as being less than equal to another due to pigment of skin.
I dedicate this song to every Caucasian person who is automatically tainted with the same brush of racism because they are white.
I dedicate this song to every law enforcement officer who is wrongfully judged and even killed simply because of their uniform.
I dedicate this song to those who fight injustice everywhere especially when it’s unpopular to do so.
I dedicate this song to all those who are persecuted and murdered for their religious beliefs.
I dedicate this song to those who are ridiculed for supporting the constitution, who remind others of the part that says “ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”
We All deserve that gift!
LOVE STILL CONQUERS ALL!!
Indeed, we ALL bleed the same.
