Erasure, arguably the gayest band on the planet, have re-recorded their seminal hit “A Little Respect.” According to Mute Records:
Proceeds from the track will be donated to The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the home of the Harvey Milk High School, in New York, and the True Colors Fund. The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the nation’s oldest and largest LGBTQ youth service organization, provides a safe and supportive environment to all young people — regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity so that they can achieve their full potential.
Not only has the song’s message taken on new meaning in light of the ongoing gay suicides and DADT struggles, but, remarkably, it still sounds current. The video is fun, full of color, and makes you want to sing and dance. A welcome return from one of The Gay’s favorite bands.
