Macklemore and Ryan Lewis front anti-homophobia campaign

'Thrift Shop' hitmakers Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have joined forced with a campaign to stamp out homophobic attitudes in sports, entertainment and music.

The Seattle-based duo have recorded a video for 'You Can Play', in which they stress that homophobia simply isn't acceptable: "Don’t let begin gay hold you back. If you’re straight, do not hold others back. Anti-gay language has no place in sports, or music. If you can play, you can play.”

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis had a hit in Australia and New Zealand last year with their track 'Same Love', which is an emotional endorsement of same sex relationships, and have openly spoken about their unwavering support of the LGBT community.

Meanwhile, 'Thrift Shop' was named the UK's No.4 single during the midweek update yesterday (February 27).
