October 11 marked the 26th annual National Coming Out Day, and one Brooklyn band with an activist streak decided to make a musical show of support. Great Caeser played 10 concerts over a space of 11 hours in celebration of the day (10/11). Beginning in Columbus Circle and ending at Feast Fest in Brooklyn, the tour meandered its way through the city, stopping in public spaces such as Times Square, Grand Central, Union Square, and the Stonewall Inn. Fans were invited to come to the location nearest them or join the musical caravan.
Great Caesar first caught our attention in January with the release of their music video for "Don't Ask Me Why." Jumping between the civil rights movement of the 1960s and today, the video highlights the interconnectedness of racial and sexual struggles, showing how they make up two parts of a greater drive for equality. With this latest project, it's clear that their dedication to spreading a message of love was no passing fancy.
