Friday Video #36: Kevin Aviance

1999 music video for "Join In The Chant" by Kevin Aviance. The song was originally done by Nitzer Ebb in 1987. The theme for the video (I don't know who directed this) was inspired by the Matthew Shepard protest rally in New York City in 1998. Kevin himself would be a victim of a gay-bashing seven years later, which adds another level of poignancy to the video when watched today. Given that Kevin will be marching again in the New York Gay Pride parade this Sunday (actually he'll be on the HX magazine float and he won't have his mouth wired shut like last year), I thought that it would be appropriate to post this today.

Kevin's version of "Join In The Chant" is availible off his album Box Of Chocolates.
