Kareem Reid

On navigating the world as a queer black body

435

About

Directed by Stephen Isaac-Wilson, Day Dream features artist and founder of club night Body Party Kareem Reid. Filmed on the first weekend of spring, this short poetically explores issues of queer loneliness, male vulnerability, and platonic intimacy. Despite an improvement of the LGBT community’s rights and media representation over the years, queer people still disproportionately suffer from loneliness and social isolation.

 

Now reaching his mid-twenties, Kareem discusses the difficulties of navigating the world as a queer black body. In the comfort of his bedroom, he allows himself to be vulnerable, and talks about growing pains, being inspired by the underground queer scene in New York and feeling constantly misunderstood.
