Norwegian Pop Star Tooji Just Came Out By Having Sex With a Priest In His New Music Video

Iranian born Norwegian pop star Tooji (aka Touraj Keshtkar )– who you may know from the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest — just came out in a pretty remarkable way… He released a new music video for “The Father Project,” which shows him having sex with a priest — in front of an entire congregation. And with came it this simple tweet:

In another video released to accompany the priest sex music video, Tooji said the following:

“I always thought that who I loved is my business, but knowing how many young people are struggling with the burden of society’s ignorance, I want to stand out as an example and let my voice be heard for all those voices mute,” he said. “I am gay, and I stand up for my rights, and that is why I made the video Father.”

Watch both that video and the noted music video below. Congrats, Tooji
