Gay rights group honours rapper Macklemore
US rap star Macklemore has been honoured by LGBT rights organisation the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
Macklemore, who penned same-sex marriage anthem ‘Same Love’ with co-star Ryan Lewis, received the honour from the ACLU in Washingon.
He accepted the Civil Libertarian Award in person at the Sheraton Hotel at the weekend.
The song ‘Same Love’, from the pair’s latest album, addressed Macklemore’s personal experiences and feelings around the issue of same-sex relationships and equal marriage, and features a video spanning the lives of a gay couple, including a happy marriage.
