Everyone Is Gay

Album: Is There Anybody Out There? (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • A Great Big World told The Huffington Post the background to this song: "Our friends at EveryoneIsGay.com asked us to write the 'gayest song ever' for their compilation album they were putting together. They give advice to kids who are struggling with their sexuality. We wanted to speak to the kids who are bullied for being who they are, and to write a song we wish we could've had growing up. Because in the end, we're all human, no matter who you love."
