Watch Tom Goss’ Hauntingly Beautiful New Music Video "Lover" Featuring 3 DADT Discharged Soldiers (Video)

Openly gay singer-songwriter Tom Goss’ new song “Lover,” tells a story very rarely told: of the loss endured by partners of gay servicemembers who are killed in battle.

The video features Goss as the bereaved partner of an army soldier (DC actor Ben Horen) killed while on duty in Afghanistan. Among those playing medics who come to the aid of the wounded soldier are several former servicemembers who were discharged under the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy: Mike Almy, David Hall, and Danny Hernandez, all of whom are active members of SLDN. Keith Bryant stars as a fellow soldier

Beautiful song and yet, so sad and haunting
