Gay Goth Scene is a sobering look at anti-gay bullying. In an interview  the band described Gay Goth Scene like this: “The song is in a minor key with an apocalyptic ending; was inspired by the idea of youth and forbidden love; and describes a fictional ‘scene’ that only exists in the mind of the protagonist’s paranoid parents. It’s told from the perspective of a mother and father, chastising their teen son about his newfound romance.”

A video of a father and son, dressed as Frozen’s Elsa and dancing to her signature song Let It Go, went viral this week. Norwegian comedian Ørjan Burøe posted the video on Sunday to his Facebook account. It shows him and his four-year-old son, Dexter, wearing Elsa’s iconic blue dress and performing delightful choreography.

Burøe told CBS News that, to Dexter, ‘Elsa is a superhero’. In explaining why he posted the video, and joined his son in the first place, he said: ‘It’s important to teach children you can do whatever you want to do. It’s important to embarrass yourself and let go.’
