Aside from the message of not being judgmental based on appearances, I really like that this video has one of my favorite bloggers, Lori Duron, as a participant. Duron is the mother of a gender non-conforming boy. In her words, her son is “a boy who likes girl things.” Lori chronicles her experiences through the blog, Raising My Rainbow, and has a book of the same title. Her blog is both funny and touching. It’s great read for anyone who may have a gender non-conforming or transgender child. Even if you don’t have one it’s still a great read.
As for Goss’s song itself, I like that it is a simple guitar instrumental. I also like that the other participants in the video range from the transgender to the tattooed. There is a decent variety of those who we make our judgments on sight vs. really getting to know the person as an individual.
