While pop artists Parson James, Wrabel and Vincint may not have everything in common, they can relate to one another as three queer men. So for Pride month, this trio decided to get together and send a message of love and hope the best way they knew how — through song.
On Friday (June 28), James, Wrabel and Vincint released their new collaboration "Oh Love," an uplifting anthem of hope for young queer people struggling with their identities.
The song's lyrics challenge those living in a "bubble" where queerness is accepted to look outward, and help those who aren't so lucky. "Oh love/ I swear there's enough of us/ In this world to change it," they sing.
For the release of their song, the trio teamed up with Dan Reynolds' LoveLoud Foundation, where they will be donating all proceeds of the track to help prevent suicide amongst LGBTQ youth. To help promote this message, all three will be appearing together at this year's LOVELOUD Festival Powered by AT&T on Saturday, June 29 to offer a live rendition of the track.
In a joint statement released with the song, James, Wrabel and Vincint said that they wanted to make something that felt true to all of their experiences. "Three queer men from different walks of life able to sing together on a song about something we all have experienced," they wrote. "Feeling excluded and alone. So many times our lives growing up and even as adults we have had those feelings of being out of place/not belonging and so many other people around the world have to experience that every day as well."
