There's no hiding that Love Bailey is one of V's favorites. The interdisciplinary artist employs music, design, and performance in her quest for creative liberation. Bailey lives primarily on a ranch, a former animal rescue—no doubt the perfect place to save herself, her family, and other members of the queer community in need of a big open space where dreams run rampant and creativity knows no bounds. It's where she conceives most of her work, where her inspiration comes alive, and where she can be whoever she wants to be. We caught up with her back in June, when she released her “Hollywood Hooker” video, which can only be described as an exuberant prayer for deliverance from the rigidity of gender and small-mindedness. It was a video for vibrant creatures to come alive in the night, on the dance floor, and in our dreams.

Today,  Bailey is debuting her newest film, today, “Child of the Universe”, which stars her partner-in-crime Sussi. In the clip, wild creatures of the night walk in broad daylight, not a care to be had. The tension builds as the darkness draws near. "A Child of the Universe is a film starring myself, that tells a story of a boy who tries to fit in by discovering his identity," said Sussi. "The expectation created from his persona becomes too much and he finds himself in a fantasy circus where his persona is killed."
