Video footage of musician Axel Winter drowning out at anti-gay protester with a rendition of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" is going viral in the blogosphere after being picked up by Buzzfeed and other media outlets.

The clip shows Winter, 24, performing in the Pitt Street Mall in Sydney, Australia last week ahead of the city's Mardi Gras parade.

"Yesterday, a man tried to yell hateful religiously inspired things about gay people in Pitt Street Mall," Winter wrote on Facebook. "So, myself and the other buskers moved my stuff behind him and drowned out his negativity."

He then added, "Whether you're homosexual or transgender or even just confused, you're still my friend."
