Seattle-based rapper Macklemore on Tuesday released the video for his single Same Love.

The music video “shows all the signs for becoming a new anthem for gay marriage in Washington state,” wrote Amy Rolph at Big Blog, a blog hosted by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Same Love, the first single from Mackelmore's upcoming album The Heist, features singer Mary Lambert.

“We support civil rights, and hope WA state voters will APPROVE REF 74 and legalize marriage equality,” the video's description reads.

In the 7-minute video, a male gay couple relives the life they shared together as they near the end of their lives.

In 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.
