Stephen Fry is part of a new music video celebrating LGBTI relationships.

The clip for songwriter Tim Arnold’s What Love Would Want features a number of diverse real-life couples.

It was published today (17 May) to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOT).

‘What if, for a second, we forget what the law wants,’ Arnold described the song.

‘[What if we] forget what the church wants, forget what the police want, forget what our leaders want, forget what our family, our parents, you or I would want and instead, ask what love would want?’

One of the couples are Fry and his husband, comdey and comic writer Elliott Spencer.

The couple tied the knot in January 2015, in a meticulously planned private ceremony.

At the time, there was furore around the couple’s 30-year age gap – but Spencer said ‘I don’t care what people think’ about critics.

They were also the first couple songwriter Arnold asked about taking part in the video.

‘Stephen Fry was the first person I played the song to after I’d finished writing it,’ he told We R Addicted.

‘I had an idea for the video so I asked Stephen if he and his husband Elliot would take part with other couples in what I saw as a collage of love and diversity.

‘They graciously accepted and from that moment the project came to life.’

The video also marks the first time Fry and Spencer appeared on camera together as a couple.
