Aloe Blacc (video created by Alex Rivera)
I was torn which video clip to put here. His song Formidable is one of my favorites and I love the sound he produces with his “R”s (yes the letter R). However in the video I chose,
he has a beautiful way of playing with identity including within gender roles, and breaking cultural standards of normativity and so that is what I am going to roll with.
