I'm a fag 4 U
Vivek Shraya & Gabriela Osio Vanden
Canada / 5:25 / 2021 / sound / colour & b/w
Inspired by the cinematography of "Truth or Dare" and "Paris is Burning," this video is an homage to late 80s/early 90s gay culture and aesthetic. Shot in 16mm, it features co-director Vivek Shraya and two other queer dancers (Rodney Diverlus and Phil Villeneuve) reclaiming streets and sidewalks, common sites of homophobic violence, and the word "fag."

Also a creative response to the loss of queer spaces during the pandemic, we hope that this video will remind queer viewers that they aren't alone, even when we can only connect virtually, and that our queerness-and faggotry-is beautiful and alive.

Image description: A stylish black-and-white photo of three gay men posing on an industrial door stoop in (from L-R) standing, crouched, and seated positions. They radiate attitude as they look directly into the camera.
