Cameron Hawthorn: “Dancing in the Living Room”

Published

on

Kansas-based country singer Cameron Hawthorn dropped the video for his latest single, “Dancing in the Living Room”; his first release since coming out to his fans on social media back in November 2018.

The video features intimate scenes of several couples dancing together in their home — including a lesbian couple, a senior couple and Hawthorn with his partner.

“I remember always thinking how special it was to dance freely with my boyfriend in the living room of our apartment — being gay, it’s not as easy to dance as a couple in public together as it is for a straight couple,” Hawthorn told The Advocate. “I wanted to express how special that moment is for a couple, when it’s just the two of you in the privacy of your own four walls.”

Hawthorn originally came out on social media back in November 2018 after watching Boy Erased.

“I just saw two movies, two nights in a row. The first was Boy Erased, last night. I saw it with one of my friends who is gay. This movie is about standing up for who you are in the face of people who want to deny you of your truth. My friend does that each and every day. And I’m proud to call him a friend because of that and much more.

“But you see, I’m also gay. And I haven’t felt like I could say that proudly until very recently. My journey getting here has taken many years and hasn’t been easy. There has been a lot of confusion, doubt, heartbreak and pain along the way. But also a lot of freedom, openness, and love. I’m so happy that I can finally stand proud in being who I am. And owning that whole-heartedly.

“I sadly and narrow-mindedly used to think that when people “came out”, they had lost themselves, given themselves up to the wrong “sinful” side, and just simply given up. But that is actually the complete opposite of what coming out is. It’s finding yourself, understanding yourself more fully, believing that you were made exactly the way you were supposed to be made.

“Seeing Boy Erased made me feel that undeniable feeling even more.”

Wrote this last night and keep rereading it and rereading it. But here we go: Let me first say as I type this, I’m not sure if I’ll actually post it. But I’ve been wanting to for so long and I hope I do because it’s time. I just saw two movies, two nights in a row. The first was Boy Erased, last night. I saw it with one of my friends who is gay. This movie is about standing up for who you are in the face of people who want to deny you of your truth. My friend does that each and every day. And I’m proud to call him a friend because of that and much more. But you see, I’m also gay. And I haven’t felt like I could say that proudly until very recently. My journey getting here has taken many years and hasn’t been easy. There has been a lot of confusion, doubt, heartbreak and pain along the way. But also a lot of freedom, openness, and love. I’m so happy that I can finally stand proud in being who I am. And owning that whole-heartedly. I sadly and narrow-mindedly used to think that when people “came out”, they had lost themselves, given themselves up to the wrong “sinful” side, and just simply given up. But that is actually the complete opposite of what coming out is. It’s finding yourself, understanding yourself more fully, believing that you were made exactly the way you were supposed to be made. Seeing Boy Erased made me feel that undeniable feeling even more. Tonight I saw Bohemian Rhapsody, the life story of Freddie Mercury. As an artist, I’m blown away and inspired beyond words. As a gay artist, I’m so ready to tell my story and sing my truth to the world. I am, have always been and will always be Cameron. I’m so ready for the ride ahead and THANK YOU and LOVE YOU to those who have been by my side through it all. Another great movie if you haven’t seen it…Won’t You Be My Neighbor? “Nobody else can live the life you live. And even though no human being is perfect, we always have the chance to bring what’s unique about us to live in a redeeming way.” -Mr. Rogers ❤️
