Singer Ari Gold describes the video for his new single, "Make My Body Rock," as a deconstruction of heterosexual marriage.
Gold tells The Advocate that both he and Colly Carver, the clip's director, are "interested in ways that children are often used to satisfy their parents' own selfish desires and the end of the video reflects that."
"I think people may see the video as really dark and twisted, but while this may seem counterintuitive to what's being shown, I happen to care immensely for children's psychological well-being," Gold says. "It's that concern that prompted me to be an openly gay artist in the first place."
Gold will appear with Alan Cumming, Billy Porter, and David Raleigh at the Hiro ballroom to premiere their remake of the video "That's What Friends Are For" on November 8, with an after-party to follow. All proceeds from the event will benefit the center, which serves New York City's homeless LGBT youth.
