sorry but this video is an embarrassment and I say that as somebody who is fine with the song's slightly hackneyed but well meaning LGBTQ+ ally messaging this tweet summarises WHY it's such a disaster quite nicely parading a roster of gay celebrities around like homo trophy wives to announce to the world that you've decided to be a vocal ally now is not really the tea. and while I wouldn't trash her for this, because ultimately a superstar supporting the cause in a video that will get hundreds of millions of views globally can't actually be a bad thing, it absolutely does expose her as somebody who will cynically deploy whatever weapon they can in order to weave a new narrative for herself. there are many music videos from the past year by artists who are LGBTQ or allies thereof which beautifully highlight how amazing, talented and magnetic the community as a whole can be without desperately screaming look! Queer Eye! Cher quotes! RuPaul! The sheer lack of artistry, nuance and self awareness on display is just a bit sad, but still I applaud her for getting the message out there, regardless of the execution or intent.
