Award-winning entertainer Sam Harris has written and recorded “My Reclamation,” a rousing anthem for marriage equality, gay rights, and civil rights. Harris tells The Advocate he was inspired to write the song because people began to rally too late to defeat California’s anti-marriage equality Proposition 8, which was passed in 2008.
“I wrote ‘My Reclamation’ because it is vital that we unite now, rally now, and pool our resources now to prepare for the next step to equality,” he says. “This song is a declaration of rights. It is about faith that unity with triumph over adversity. As a gay man, a husband, father, and musician, I wrote this song to remind myself and others that 'it is not enough just to forward and delete.’ I hope this song moves people. It's a call to action.”
