Keiynan came up with the video concept with director Chris Coats.

“I like to say that it’s me performing in front of my fears. To me, the song is about freedom. It’s about letting out your inner freak. But before you can own your freedom, you have to cross over and face your fears. So I wanted to physically represent those fears.”

The choreography by Anthony ‘Skvtch’ Gilbert nods to legendary King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Except that Keiynan is surrounded by glittering half-naked male dancers.

After starring in Love, Simon, The Flash, and Legends Of Tomorrow and judging on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Keiynan recently finished filming rom-com My Fake Boyfriend.

My Fake Boyfriend

Keiynan stars opposite Sarah Hyland and Dylan Sprouse in a lighter take on the queer world than Love, Simon. In the movie, his character enlists friends to help create a fake online boyfriend. But then he falls in love with a real person and needs to dispose of the imaginary boyfriend.

Keiynan Lonsdale spoke to QNews in September about the importance of queer representation.

“I think it’s about people coming together and I’m really stoked and amazed and honoured that I get to be in this position to tell these stories. To be a part of them. To live the experience of going through these questions and certain suffering. Then learning about it and being part of stories that get to be part of light in that space for others. It’s a real gift, I pinch myself all the time that this is what I get to do.”
