Exclusive: In 'Love Is Love,' Trey Pearson Finds His Gay Community

Exclusive: In Trey Pearson’s 'Love Is Love,' a Christian Finds His Gay Community

Trey Pearson has released a new music video. Shared exclusively with The Advocate, the video is for the title track of his new album, Love Is Love, which also drops today.

Pearson is the former lead singer of Everyday Sunday, a Christian rock band. He made international headlines in 2016 when he came out as gay.

For Pearson, Love Is Love is his move into the pop genre as well as a celebration of being an out member of the LGBT community. In the jubilant video, he and gay friends step out for a night on the town.

"'Love Is Love' has become a mantra in the LGBTQ community that stands up for the right to love and be loved, fully. This love song, and this album, represent that freedom for me," Pearson told The Advocate.

"I wanted the music video to be a tribute to all LGBTQ sacred spaces. Gay bars and queer spaces have been a refuge for me over this last year, and it is where I have been able rebuild my life after losing so much when I came out. I’m overjoyed to be able to make a video about a gay love song that takes pride in these spaces that mean so much for our community."

Watch "Love Is Love" below, and find the album on iTunes.
