a video for the group Music for Marriage Equality, Macklemore
said he doesn't get homophobia.
“I grew up with
two gay uncles on Capitol Hill. … I was always around a community
of gay people. … As a hip-hop artist, [being gay is] still a taboo
issue. … There's so much fear, and so much of it dates back to
religion. … I think that we have evolved as a society, and this is
our time to create the change that is right,” he said.
