Honorary gay, Jason Mraz, attended Elton John’s 18th annual Oscar Viewing Party in West Hollywood on Sunday night, and arrived with a proposal for Elton.
Not a marriage proposal. Elton’s already married, and Jason, why uber gay friendly, is hetero.
No, he wanted to discuss a possible collaboration with Elton John on what he hoped would be an “Ebony and Ivory”-type song about equality for the LGBT community–although it wouldn’t be as cheesy as “E&I”. Mraz’s idea would bring the heterosexual community together with the gay and lesbian community in support of the rights of gays to legally marry. Mraz has long been been a vocal supporter of marriage equality, via his blog, Freshness Factor Five Thousand, and even urged the crowd at a 2008 concert to vote “NO” on Proposition 8.
I hope this comes into being. Between Elton and Jason’s passion for the rights of the LGBT community this could be a great thing. But, since we don’t have the song yet, let me leave you with a little Jason to whet your appetite.
Wet? Then here’s a song, too.
