Here's the Indigo Girls' totally awesome video for "Galileo":

And Amy Ray, in her own words for "Daughters of the Moon, Sisters of the Sun", on being called "gay":

I used to think about that sometimes mostly because my mom and I when we later started having open dialogue about how she felt about things, she always talked about terminology being an issue with her, too; feeling like if you call yourself gay, you alienate your chances of being sexual with men. I call myself gay. I feel attracted to men and I've been out with men and men I've been in love with but I find that I'm more drawn to women so I think that's my context. But there's a lot of people I know that feel they don't want to be labelled anything - love is love, period. They're coming from a real desire to embrace everything.
