Thursday, May 13, 2010 17:10 GMTLOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Dont judge streetwise, tattooed vatos by their looks they could be gay like anyone else.
Grammy-winning activists Ozomatli have just dropped a new track dubbed Gay Vatos In Love from their latest album, Fire Away.
The controversial ditty celebrates same-sex unions particularly among vatos, or Latino dudes with lyrics like: Gay vatos in love/ if the world cant understand/ stand by your man.
Band member Ulises Bella says the song was inspired by the Proposition 8 protests in California and the ongoing stigma gay Latinos face.
He argues that theres no one way to be gay since really anyone can be gay, including tough, hardcore gangsters.
To that end, Bella says Ozomatli got real life gay vatos in love to appear in their music video and share their relationships.
Bella says his crew is proud to support gay rights and would gladly lend their jam to rallies and pride parades across the globe.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
