    My assistant, Nadia, actually came up with the concept for the video while we were at a barcade- she suggested the line “I probably should know your name” could be in reference to an arcade’s HIGH SCORE screen, and that’s when the music video baby was born. I really wanted the premise to be something sexy and quirky and fun, and I think Erix Arocha really knocked it out of the park. The main thing I kept circling back to when I started conceptualizing the video was that it needed to be trans-inclusive. I wanted to do a rib off of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video, but nerdier and queer as hell. I have so many beautiful and talented friends and I knew casting would be a breeze. Jacob Tobia, Gabi Fresh, Firda Herryandhy, and Hazel Jade were brilliant and sexy and playful in each of their characters- I feel super lucky to know them. I met Sara Ramirez at a fundraiser for homeless LGBT youth this last year, and we immediately hit it off. When the concept for the video began developing, Sara was the first person I thought of. She was unbelievably generous with her time, energy, and enthusiasm for the video. As I was conceptualizing the video, I had just read Ready Player One, which is an amazing novel by Ernest Cline. It’s packed with 80s references and a ton of video game knowledge, so I knew I wanted the premise to be surrounding this idea that a bunch of killer babes were great at video games. Together, each character and I came up with a bunch of roller-derby-esque names, under the premise that each character had their own backstory and strength.
