Backstreet Boys' AJ McLean Celebrates Trans Community With 'Love Song Love' Video

Backstreet Boys alum AJ McLean has released the video for his new solo single, “Love Song Love.” In the video, McLean dresses in drag while dancing around a dollhouse to celebrate the transgender community.

Directed by René Elizondo and McLean and featuring a life-size Hollywood dollhouse dripping in pink, McLean appears alongside transgender models Nahla Wyld and Carmen Carrera, partying it up amid flowers and feather boas.
The video is part of the longtime LGBTQ ally’s efforts to promote discussion and awareness of the fight for equality. His support comes amid a wave of proposed anti-transgender legislation in the U.S.

“Now, more than ever, my trans and non-binary fans’ rights and very existence are being attacked in politics and in the streets,” he says. “What’s happening is unacceptable. I’m an ally and this song, to me, screams ‘love no matter what.’ It’s about loving and respecting one another.”

McLean notes that the current climate serves as a reminder of how much work lies ahead, despite the progress that’s been made towards equality.

“The transgender community has been getting pushback for years,” he tells Variety. “Things are starting to change and with the new administration, there’s more open-mindedness, which is how it should’ve always been because it really doesn’t matter if you were born a boy, but have always been a girl. But there’s a long way to go.”

The single comes from the first of two EPs McLean plans to release this year.
