Having shot into the mainstream during the election period recreating ‘I Want a Dyke for President’, queer-rap superstar Mykki Blanco has released his video for 'Loner'

The video, a collaboration between Blanco, Nicola Formichetti, and surprisingly Pornhub, is a wash of bright colours, distortion and an exploration of sexuality, love, and isolation in the digital age. Mykki is surrounded by models engrossed in virtual reality headsets, all wearing the Autumn/Winter collection of Nicopanda, the label of Formichetti, who is best known as Creative Director at Diesel and a frequent collaborator of Lady Gaga’s. Formichetti spoke about working with Mykki and Pornhub saying that “we’re all excited to have created a music video that pushes the boundaries in a time when boundaries are being politically and socially reinforced”.

The collaboration kickstarts a conversation on the separation between the mainstream and sexuality, and whether underground movements can be brought to the forefront through this exploration. This is particularly the case for queer and trans rights which have been brought into dialogue over the last year by artists like Blanco himself, alongside Le1f and PWR BTTM.
