Queer Band Shirley House Invites You To Celebrate Yourself In “Get Lit” Video

"If he comes for me and tries to take my crown/ There's another thing coming, he don't know how to hold me down."

It’s a queer dance party in the colorful video for Shirley House’s new self-love single, “Get Lit.”

The Brooklyn band is known for its high-energy live performances that get people moving and the video is no different, featuring partying dancers, queer kisses and an inspiring sense of freedom.

“The video tells a story about what’s possible when we break free from abuse and celebrate ourselves, our friends, our community,” frontman Sam Brady said. “This song will not only get you on your feet, but also create a feeling of acceptance. That’s what defines every Shirley House performance.”

The band celebrates ball culture in their work, and their house consists of underground ballroom voguer Monster LaBeija and choreographer Omari Mizrahi.
