The song “Same Love” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Mary Lambert is a song that represents equality for the gays. “Same Love” (Macklemore & Lewis, 2013) starts off with a slow melodious piano introduction and starts with Macklemore rapping. Macklemore begins with, “When I was in the third grade, I thought that I was gay ‘Cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight” (Macklemore LLC, 2013, 0:55), these two lines talks about Macklemore’s past personal experiences when growing up because he liked artistic activities rather than masculine activities and the artistic activities are not considered masculine, according to stereotypes. This leads to “A preconceived idea of what it all meant For all those that like the same sex had the characteristics” (Macklemore LLC, 2013, 1:15), which states that at a young age the youths in society are told of the stereotype that gay men are ‘unmanly’.
