Trouble Wanted 'Lonely Cowgirl' by Lydia Garnett
Lydia Garnett creates a Western-themed utopia in her fearlessly unique promo for Trouble Wanted.
The video for Lonely Cowgirl follows a queer, lesbian romance that unfolds in a fantasy roadside bar, full of high-drag, lusty visual exchanges and John Waters-style weirdness.
Produced by a team of creative talent from London's queer scene, the careful attention paid to lighting, art direction and styling make this otherwordly saloon feel like it could be set in any time period between 1970 and 2030.
We created a story of seduction, a funny, sexy powerplay and a very queer exchange.
"How often do we get to see queer women's stories on screen, and how often do queer women get to own their fantasies?
"As a queer team and band, we had the freedom to create our own narrative and represent ourselves authentically on screen: the gaze and the story was ours alone. We created a story of seduction, a funny, sexy powerplay and a very queer exchange.
"There was a collective energy and joy in the production that came from being able to live our fantasies on screen and create something that we all wanted to watch."

In Lydia Garnett's black and white video for Heaven And Songs, Kerai’s Sasha Wilde moves in an undefined space, coming in and out of focus, momentarily emerging from darkness into light.
