Shamir - Straight Boy

Shamir has released a video for the song "Straight Boy," the latest from his new album, Revelations. NPR, who premiered the Ryan Carpenter-directed video today, are saying it's "raw and intimate, like a one-on-one conversation," while Shamir says the video is about "white washing and queer bating in media. Its about how frustrating it was for me to have my whole identity picked apart at a young age just to see straight white men use it as an aesthetic choice. The video, quite unequivocally depicts the process of white washing and the repudiation of the queer and people of color who pioneered."
