'We Are Young' hits prime time television

If you didn’t know fun., the New York-based indie pop band, before last night’s episode of Glee, when the kids covered “We Are Young,” you most likely do now.

But what you might not already know about fun. is that the band’s active in queer causes that are, believe it or not, gayer than Glee.

The band, whose new album, Some Nights, is out in February, is selling T-shirts that read “It’s all fun. and gay ‘til someone loses their rights,” which don’t just pay lip service to equal rights. Indeed, all proceeds from the shirt will be donated to Revel and Riot to help promote LGBTQ rights, awareness and equality.

Below, check out the "We Are Young" cover from Glee and also an acoustic version of the song featuring Janelle Monae.
