Gay Filipino-Korean Songwriter Owns Country in Hilarious Music Video

A Filipino-Korean writer, actor and musician from Ohio is the star of a new music video that hilariously weaves gay culture, Asian stereotypes and country music altogether.

Nathan Ramos, whose song “When December Comes” opened the ABC Christmas Day Parade in 2017, says that he wanted to create something that would subvert country music — something he describes as “a traditionally very straight white male space.”

 

“I’ve loved country music my entire life, from Rascal Flatts to Dolly Parton, Martina McBride to Tim McGraw,” says Ramos, who dropped “Gay Asian Country Love Song” on Jan. 18.

“Growing up in Ohio, I had dreams of being the first Asian American to be on the Billboard Country Music Charts. This is a love letter to both country music, and to being gay and Asian.”

“Gay Asian Country Love Song” centers on a romantic affair between two Asian men in the countryside, who apparently meet at a bar where Ramos performs.
