In 2002, Christina Aguilera released “Beautiful”: truly an anthem for my generation.
The video shows a gay couple kissing while people watch in shock, a transvestite getting dressed & putting make up on, a girl getting bullied to death, & other people who are “different”.
Whether you’re gay or straight, dark skinned or light skinned, skinny or voluptuous, Lebanese or American, you can relate to this song equally.
Yes, you’re different.
Don’t be ashamed of it.
“You’re beautiful no matter what they say. Words can’t bring you down.”
No wonder was Christina honored by GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) for her positive images of LGBT people in Beautiful. (source)
