How Drake Jensen sings the anti-bullying blues
This is Ottawa-based country singer Drake Jensen's latest video, "On My Way to Finding You":
It may sound like a typical country song, but the video shows a male singer embracing his husband -- not something typical of the country scene, which has mostly portrayed heterosexual relationships and gender roles.
The video is also dedicated to Jamie Hubley, the Ottawa teenager who was bullied for being gay, and who killed himself this past fall. Drake says Jamie's death affected him greatly, as Drake himself was bullied as a kid for being gay. So recently Drake has been doing a lot of work with anti-bullying groups, and he joined us on the show to tell his story.
