The Irrepressibles 'Yo Homo' by Joseph Wilson

Promonews - 5th June 2024

The Irrepressibles' punk anthem of queer defiance inspires a mesmerizing visual from Joseph Wilson brimming with homosexual desire.

For the video for Yo Homo, Wilson casts performers from London's alt-queer scene to lipsync the lyrics of the song and radiate attitude and palpable physicality, as they celebrate their identities unashamedly through dance in a rundown warehouse, leading to an explosive climax. The energetic choreography and fast-moving cinematography juxtaposed against the single location and minimalist wardrobe, plus the inventive use of graphics, create an edgy and unexpected visual narrative.    

A London-based artist and drag performer himself, Wilson drew on his own rebellious youth as a jumping off point for this project. 

"Yo Homo explores the rage of queer youth and the power of community," he explains. "The song takes me back to my teens, when I would get drunk in skateparks and go wild in mosh pits at local rock shows. It’s the song I wish I knew when I was 16, and the song I listen to now with pride and sweet nostalgia."
