VID: Objectified, by cupidsbow (Victor/Victoria, Vic/King, PG-13)

Julie Andrews is so awesome. I've wanted to vid this move for a while, not only because of Julie Andrews, but because I love the genderfuckery. I chose this song by Shawna Virago because it really captures so many aspects of gender-queerness, and the way that gender is performance. It made me think a lot about the politics of the film too, and using a trans anthem in a vid about it. Victor/Victoria does carefully stay within the bounds of heternormativity as you'd expect of a Hollywood film, but despite that, it has some quite nuanced moments about queerness and homophobia, and when I re-watched it, I was surprised at how little it had dated in that regard. It still feels fresh and relevant.
