Singer Tom Goss Sheds Light On Domestic Violence Among LGBTQ Couples In New Video

We all have either been personally affected and traumatized by domestic violence, or know someone that has been. The same is true in the LGBTQ community. Singer Tom Goss is not afraid to shine a light on domestic violence in his newest music video titled, “La Bufadora.” No one is immune.

Huff Post reports :

Singer-songwriter Tom Goss wants to remind listeners that they have “the power to change their own lives” in his latest single, “La Bufadora.” 

HuffPost got an exclusive first look at the music video for the song, which was directed by Michael Serrato and unveiled Monday. In it, Goss appears alongside actor Daniel Franzese ― who audiences will recognize from “Mean Girls” and HBO’s “Looking” ― as one half of a tempestuous couple on an ill-fated vacation along the Mexican coast. Before the song reaches its emotional climax, the pair’s altercations turn violent.

“Although much of the cultural discussion about intimate partner violence has focused on heterosexual couples, recent research by the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control found that 26% of gay men and 37% of bisexual men have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. ” HP

For lesbian and bisexual women, those rates are 43.8% and 61%, respectively.
