Gay Man In Russia Defies Anti-LGBT Laws With Cover Of Hozier's 'Take Me To Church': VIDEO

Russia

A gay man in Russia has defied the country’s draconian anti-gay laws by performing a cover of Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” at a talent competition in small south western city Kursk, reports BreakingNews.

The song addresses the violence and bigotry suffered by LGBT citizens in Russia.

According to a post on Reddit, the man - identified only as Pedrinho - pointed towards his boyfriend when as he sang the line "I was born sick but I love it.”

Kursk RussiaReddit member Boxersaurus wrote:

"My friend, a Brazilian medical student here in Russia was born in an extremely Catholic family, his father is a Pastor, born into a church family, this song really speaks to him. He came out when he was 12 years old, and until now, his family never truly accepted him.

"Even when he turned 19 years old, he was still not sure and got into bouts of depression, his family never supporting him. This is really him trying to sing out his pain. He's not just gay and proud, he's just human. Wanting to tell the world that he's ok, and he's surviving.

"And, that he finally found someone he can sing his song of life to, my best friend who ended up dating him, who is Malaysian and was brought up in an extremely Buddhist family. In his case, only his mother knew about his sexuality and it pained his mother so much, she fell sick.

"According to Hozier, this song is about what it is to be a human, what it is to love someone as a human being, and organizations that would undermine that, and undermine the more natural parts of being a person.

"If you feel offended or disgusted by the image of two people kissing, if that's what it is, but you're more disgusted by that than the actual violence...I think you should take a look at your values, maybe.”

Screen Shot 2015-03-25 at 3.43.38 PM

Minneapolis couple Joe Morales and Joey Famoso have experienced a tough road on the way to adoption, with their latest attempt to adopt a baby girl falling through at the last second. Instead of dwelling on the heartache of their situation, the two created a viral parody video set to Meghan Trainor’s song "Dear Future Husband," called "Dear Future Baby" - an ode to their future baby boy or girl. The couple wrote and sang the song together to share their message with the world and shared  why they wrote the song with TODAY Parents 

Said Morales:

"We wanted to do something different that stood out, but also showed our personalities. We were very intentional about the words used in the song to illustrate the type of dads we will be. There are so many great families for a birthmother to choose, and by doing this, we hope to be one of the top on her list."

Although the Internet has already generated potential leads for the couple, they’re aware that a lot can happen in the adoption process before they’re connected to a baby. However, the couple remains hopeful after all the support they’ve received from the online community; even Meghan Trainor commented on the parody in On Air with Ryan Seacrest, calling the parody "the cutest thing ever - I’m gonna tweet it."

The couple also has an informational site through their adoption agency and a group page devoted to their adoption efforts on Facebook.

Watch the two sing about what their future baby’s life will be like with them, and the sweet things they’ll do for their baby, AFTER THE JUMP
