One of our favorite alt country bands just dropped a steamy -- yet tender -- new video for their song "I Don't Know What To. Indiana Queen is a group fronted by openly queer Kevin Thornton that is breaking new group in the traditionally conservative, heteronormative genre of country music. When I asked my friends Phillipe and Nick a real life couple in Nashville who star in the video , they brought so much chemistry it morphed into something else, but I really love the end result. Check out the video above and keep your eyes peeled for Indiana Queen's album release next month.
Are people born gay or do these feelings develop over time? It's still a mystery, but that doesn't stop researchers and laymen alike from asking if our environments are to blame, as if being gay is an affliction that needs to be solved like a cycle of poverty. Some psychologists and ex-gay therapy groups often throw in the claim that gay men long for other men out of a subconscious need to connect with an absent or lacking father. According to theories, this "father hunger" is so strong that gay men deny their "natural" attractions and head toward the boy's room. I'm no psychologist, but the idea of father hunger sounds plausible given the number of subconscious actions we take based on environmental influences.

That's powerful, especially for teens and other people who haven't yet found a safe place and way to express who they really are.
