Music Video: Partner – ‘The “Ellen” Page’

Music Video: Partner – ‘The “Ellen” Page’

October 20, 2015 | Posted in: Partner, YCTV 0

Some words from Partner:

I remember it well: it was a cold night in February, almost too cold to go outside. Lucy and I were keeping warm with some cans of Alpine when we heard the news: Ellen Page has come out as a lesbian. We high fived, we hugged, our joy knew no bounds. Maybe we knew it in our hearts all along; to hear it from Ellen herself was so special. She was free.

The light of a soul unburdened can be blinding. We felt it then and we can see it now: Ellen Page is kicking ass, and she’s more herself than ever before. Though the idea for this song wouldn’t strike us for another year after her coming out speech, when it did, it was so easy. We were, and are, still inspired.

This song is intended to be a celebration: a coming out anthem, a source of pride, strength, and joy, a chorus of solidarity. It’s a tip of the hat to Ellen Degeneres, who has done so much to shape the pop culture climate into a place that is safer for many of us, and to Ellen Page who is doing so much good work and making us maritime lesbians (and lesbians the world over) so damn proud.

There is still so much work to be done, but the fact that we are able to sing this song is a triumph. It is a privilege to have our voices heard, and that privilege is predicated on the long and harrowing history of queer folks of all identities, and especially those with intersectional identities who have faced (and continue to face) realities more complex and dangerous than we can fully understand. We are profoundly grateful to those before us, and ever-mindful of the struggles of those who do not share in our privilege who are working and making art alongside us.

So, if you’re on the same page, this one’s for you.

With open hearts,

Partner

YCR had a pretty rad year in 2014, with new music from Marine Dreams and The Weather Station, the release of Community Theatre, our collaborative super-group project with Headless Owl Records, and the reissue of The Constantines’ Shine A Light.

We also celebrated our 5th anniversary with a couple of concerts featuring as many of our pals and collaborators as we could muster, our hearts full of song and good cheer. Huge thanks are due to Colin Medley for documenting the happenings May 22nd at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, Ontario, Canada,  in this live concert film featuring performances from Richard Laviolette, Baby Eagle, Marine Dreams, The Weather Station, Daniel Romano and the Trilliums, and Shotgun Jimmie.  It was a good night.

Truly, truly, thank you for listening and supporting the music. Lots more to come in 2015!
