Dorian Electra (they/them/theirs) releases their music video for Guyliner. In celebration of the video, Dorian Electra announces their very own Guyliner product on sale now with proceeds going towards LA LGBT Center.
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 video features cameos from Nadya from Pussy Riot, Hana, Smrtdeath, Chester Lockhart, K.O and more.
Speaking on the video Dorian Electra states “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 favourite parts of each and everything between. ”
In the past year, Dorian has gained a rapidly growing global fanbase with their debut album recognised in prestigious end of year round-ups from PAPER, VICE,The Guardian, Dazed, Needle Drop and more. 2019 saw Dorian Electra sell-out headline show at London’s Village Underground and their singles Career Boy, Man To Man and Flamboyant hit 1 Million streams on Spotify with the music video for their title track hitting 1 Million views on Youtube.
Dorian Electra will be playing shows across US, AUS, UK and Europe in their biggest headline tour to date, The Flamboyant Tour: Chapter II – with UK and EU dates starting in London April 24th and ending in Turin. Tickets here: https://dorianelectra.com/tour
