Today, gender fluid popstar Dorian Electra (they/them/theirs) shared a music video for their glam-worthy track “Guyliner”. Directed by Dorian Electra and their long time creative partner Weston Allen, the video sees Dorian take on the ideals of masculinity by shaping and breaking stereotypes. The visuals and outfits in the video were styled by Dorian, with choice looks influenced by neon scene kid and steampunk culture, serving as an ode to trends that came out of the early 00’s Myspace-era. The video features cameos from a noteworthy crew of musicians and artists including Nadya (Pussy Riot), Chester Lockhart, Hana, Smrtdeath, Mood Killer and more.
Speaking on creating the video, Dorian Electra stated: “I wanted to harken back to the mid 2000s emo/Myspace/scene kid aesthetic because that was a really special cultural moment for masculinity that helped make it more okay for “guys” to wear tight “girl’s” jeans, makeup, have “crazy” hair and be more flamboyant fashion-wise in general. The idea of rockstar guys wearing makeup like “guyliner” was definitely something that ultimately made me feel more comfortable wearing makeup myself as a gender fluid person (I wore super thick black eyeliner all throughout high school). For me, makeup is a big part of how I express myself and I love blending feminine and masculine elements together to create looks that draw on my favorite parts of each and everything between.”
