Ari Gold, now usually known as Sir Ari, has made this the third single release from his albumBetween the Spirit & the Flesh.
This video dreamscape finds Sir Ari searching for love through ritual and symbolism amid old temples and churches. Traditional religious garments turn fetishistic and fetish becomes a religious experience. Ari soon discovers an unexpected relationship, which helps him to overcome obstacles in re-discovering his spirituality and sexuality.
Ari Gold’s Wave of You was the first video by an openly gay artist to debut on LOGO when it launched in 2005. Paying tribute to the late photographer and film-maker Herb Ritts (who died of AIDS in 2002), and directed by Guy Guido, the video features transexuals DJ Lina, and Raphaella and pays homage to such videos as Madonna’s “Cherish”, Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do Without You” and Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” but reconfigures them in a queer light.
