WATCH: Jussie Smollett’s New Video is the Queerest of the New Year

If you’ve ever watched “Empire,” you’ll instantly recognize Jussie Smollett as the tortured, devious, deliciously queer middle brother of the Lyon clan, Jamal Lyon, a character so gay that he nearly had a thing with Alicia Keys onscreen. In short: We love him. In real life, Smollett isn’t just a talented actor, singer, and HIV activist: He’s a serious force to be reckoned with. If you’ve ever doubted it, take a look at his latest release “Freedom,” a “Lemonade”-esque track inside of a beautiful video featuring scenes of queer love. In Smollett’s own words, “love is freedom.”

Now that’s a sentiment we can use more of in the New Year. Smollett’s full album is due in the Spring.
