ADAM & STEVE, 3min, USA, Music

Directed by Dorian Electra

Rising pop star Dorian Electra’s music video for Adam & Steve rewrites homophobic religious rhetoric into queer empowerment. Taking the anti-LGBTQ slogan “God made Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve” and subverting it, Dorian instead imaginatively re-writes biblical “history” through a subversive queer lens. Co-directed by Electra and creative partner Weston Allen, “Adam & Steve” explores martyrdom, conversion therapy, and sexual repression in this daring and fantastical video.
