Openly gay and HIV+ singer-songwriter John Grant has released a compelling new music video for his pro-LGBT track "Glacier" from his sophomore album "Pale Green Ghosts."

The video features various clips from pivotal moments throughout LGBT history contrasted with Grant's hauntingly beautiful lyrics describing the realities of life as an HIV+ gay man.

“I wished I had heard somebody talking about the fact, you know, being gay didn’t make me less of a human than other people,” Grant told HIV Plus Mag in an August interview. “It takes a very, very long time to undo a lot of the damage [from this abuse].”

Check out the video above and head here to buy "Pale Green Ghosts" on Itunes.
