Show Some Love

Show some LOVE for this cause: A Song for Pride
Sydney Mardi Gras is an opportunity for anyone and everyone to celebrate their version of love. Whether it’s gay love, lesbian love, interracial love, family love, friend love, or even pet love, Sydney unites under the fact that love is for everyone. This incredible theme inspired Australian Musician Toby Martin to create a song for everyone, by everyone, in honor of love. And I got to see it!

Martin teamed up with Twenty10, an organization that provides a safe space and support for LGBT youth, to create “(If It Ain’t For Everyone) It Ain’t Love”. Transphobia and homophobia continue to be major issues in Sydney, which is why the song was created at the perfect moment (Yay, Mardi Gras!). Not to mention it sent positive feels to everyone in the crowd reminding them that they are not alone.

The B-E-A-Utiful people of Australia created the lyrics by completing the sentence: “Love is…”. And with that, “It ain’t love” became the soundtrack to Sydney Mardi Gras/PRIDE. Martin and a team of volunteers collected over 1,000 definitions of love. The song was debuted at Fair Day and is now available FOR FREE on Google Play.
