John Grant Unveils New Video For “Glacier”

John Grant - new video for "Glacier" tackles the history of LGBT rights in America. His album "Pale Green Ghosts" is now out on Partisan Records.

Today, John Grant is proud to share his unflinching and moving new video for “Glacier,” off his 2013 album Pale Green Ghosts.  The songs lyrics tackle the experience of suffering from struggles associated with homophobia (John is publicly out and HIV positive) — but they are universal in how they tackle all types of oppression — and are ultimately uplifting and empowering.

The video juxtaposes these themes with footage from various moments in LGBT history.  From news footage during WWII and Wizard of Oz, all the way through Stonewall and Harvey Milk, culminating with the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, the legalization of gay marriage, and Blue Is The Warmest Color.
