Gay Singer-Songwriter Eric Himan Has a Soulful Message for Bigoted Arizona Lawmakers: VIDEO


Gay singer-songwriter Eric Himan was traveling to Phoenix to play a show when lawmakers passed SB1062, the bill allowing businesses to discriminate against gays based on religious beliefs?

In a fit of inspiration, he says he wrote "Not Going Anywhere Tonight" and shot this impromptu video for the project.

Said Himan, who will be touring this spring with fellow singer/songwriter/activists Ani DiFranco and Leon Russell this spring: “I couldn't take it. I had to write this song and put it out there.”


Towleroad readers may remember Himan's previous video "Red Hot Tears".

  6. Why does it look like he's lip synch'ing?

  7. He'll be remembered with the protest singers of the early '60's. Can you name one?

  8. @blake yeah all those obscure people we don't remember from the 1960's like Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger. Hard to remember them isn't it?

  9. Notice: You forgot Peter Paul & Mary. Now Dylan does Cadillac commercials.

  10. Eric Himan is dy-no-might. Hot as a pistol, high style courage and a great, distinctive voice. Woof! Watch him. His song and video from last year, Red Hot Tears was mesmerizing.
