Toronto-based singer Troy Jackson is launching a video for his song "Batty Boy's Revenge" — a rallying cry against homophobic violence.
Check out the teaser for the music video below:
Jackson spoke to fab magazine's Drew Rowsome last year about homophobia, race and music:
"In Vancouver I was spit on once but Toronto was the first time I was called a batty man," notes Jackson. Being the recipient of the Jamaican homophobic slur was somewhat offset by witnessing what Jackson calls "a reverse gay bashing" where the gays, with the help of some straight girls, drove away would be bashers by standing up and stating, "This is our neighbourhood." The events planted the seed for Jackson's song "Batty Boy's Revenge." (read the full interview at fabmagazine.com)
