“Don’t Let Go” by Greg Gould is Taking the Internet By Storm

The visual tackles discrimination same-sex couples have to endure, pulling together a number of real-life stories for a powerful narrative.

Since being posted to Facebook last week, the clip has been viewed more than 5 million times!

Gould, 28, a runner-up on Australia’s Got Talent in 2013 recently left his record label after they told him he was ‘too gay’ and went independent.


‘They rejected my ideas, but it wasn’t the first time. I felt to them and I quote ‘the gay thing’ was PR just for them, but for me, it’s my life,’ he said.

‘It’s my friends. My family. They went as far as to say ‘Greg aren’t we done with the gay equality thing?’ I felt bullied.

‘They told me that the reason they were struggling to book me gigs was because my Instagram was ‘too gay’.

‘When I asked them what they even meant they screen shot a photo of me posting a picture of me having a drink with a mate. It was ridiculous.
