July is "Ex-gay Pride Month," according to absolutely nobody except the Family Research Council. But it is still news worth celebrating, according to "ex-gay" rights advocates. Worth celebrating with a song!
Which is why Voice for the Voiceless (Mission: "Defending the rights of former homosexuals") recently put out a request for an anthem, and there are some pretty incredible perks if you win!
Perks like debuting your music video "LIVE at the First Ex-Gay Pride Month celebration in Washington, DC." And ... that is it, basically.
Not sure how to capture the pulse of the "ex-gay" movement in four chords? Don't sweat it, Dan Savage and some other aspiring musicians on Twitter have a few suggestions to spare.
My personal recommendation? "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away," of course.
