STAGE TUBE: New Promo for GayCo's #GODHATESHASHTAGS Declares #GodLovesTwerking
Through scenes and song, #GodHatesHashtags explores gay identity after hate, lesbian bar culture after the closing of T's, the sanctity of Cracker Barrel after being desecrated by homosexuals, the inanity of social media sex profiles, the corporatization of gay rights groups, and the twerk-tinged wisdom of disregarded LGBTQ youth. The production has revealed a new promo, titled '#GodLovesTwerking - check it out below!
Ultimately, what will happen to the gay community after #GayMarriage and #Equality are no longer trending topics? Probably lots of twerking.
