Synopsis

An intertextual music video in which backstage bickering between star and director erupts into a dissection of the limited cultural role models available to young gay men, both in the dominant culture and in the gay ghetto. Citing If… and featuring future Greyson spouse Stephen Andrews lip-synching a slowed-down tenor “To Sir with Love,” this tape stresses the hegemonic role of the dominant culture in shaping the expectations and assumptions of the supposedly alternative “gay” ghetto.
