The Clip Closet. Queer moments in music video.
The Clip Closet is to pop promos what Vito Russo’s The Celluloid Closet (1981) is to film and Michael Wilke’s The Commercial Closet (2001) is to advertising: a reflective take on the representation of non-normative sexualities and gender identities in video clips. Curated by Evan Romero, this online archive tracks the evolution of queer narratives in the music video industry and reviews clips that are culturally relevant to LGBTIQ. Coming out soon. ©2014 Evan Romero. Twitter: @clipcloset.
