Stars released this video for “Hold On When You Get Love, Let Go when You Give it” yesterday, just after some history defining rulings in the US and during pride week. Here is what messages Torquil wanted to achieve in this video:
“1. being yourself
2. being someone else.
3. being fucking fabulous
4. showing up, putting on your heels and staying alive. Drag queens know a couple of things the rest of us choose not to know: you are who you imagine yourself to be, and you can be a star even if, especially if, nobody ever knows who you really are. That’s the spirit of pop, and this is a video for a POP song that most people will never hear, so I thought it all went together like Sonny and Cher.”
