French Bloggers Use Lily Allen To Fight Homophobia

A story from The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (UK):

Using Lily Allen's 'F*ck You' track from her latest album, blog visitors have submitted mimed videos to the track, which have been edited together to form a tremendously uplifting anti-homophobia video.

The video has been fully approved by Lily herself (and her record company Parlophone). She says of the song, 'it's not a direct attack at anyone, it was originally written about the BNP in the UK but then I felt this issue has become relevant pretty much everywhere. The future is up to us... hate hate."

A huge well done to all involved at - you made our day with this amazing video, and truly deserve a Homo Heroes Award! We encourage you to link to this in all your social networks!


Bonus: It's a very catchy song.

The original story can be found here in English or here in French.

I love her songs because they have caustic lyrics wrapped in sugar sweet music. I always give credit to NPR for turning me on to her. True story.
