“I was surprised by the reaction because the outfits are way more conservative than the shirtless guys in Speedos and jockstraps I typically have in my videos.”
That’s gay rapper Cazwell — previously from New York, now based in Los Angeles — commenting on the polarizing opinions he received after posting a teaser Instagram photo to promote his new single “Loose Wrists,” which features the blue-eyed performer and his backup dancers twerking in lacy rompers:
“I moved to Los Angeles a year ago,” Cazwell says, “and I wanted to make a song that people could drop their convertible tops down to and head bang along with.”
“I noticed a Femme Pride movement brewing a few years back, but it has not been so visible until now. It’s about time we all embrace femme. Whether we are gay or straight, when men get in touch with their feminine sides, it gives a real sense of empowerment.
We have a president that wants to take us off of the census and a vice president that believes shock therapy will cure gayness. At the end of last year, I vowed to be as gay as possible with my music and videos. We have to be more visible than ever, and I hope I inspire that.”
