Today, Mike Taveira is revealing his new pansexual pop anthem, “Curious.” The single is being released alongside the official music video which premiered on Billboard Pride yesterday. The video stars notable queer icons such as RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Monét X Change and Sonique, trans model Arisce Wanzer, and George Todd McLachlan from Showtime’s Shameless, among other familiar faces, and offers a glimpse into what it means to identify as pansexual.
Growing up without any openly pansexual figures to look up to, Taveira knew that his personal journey needed to be expressed through his own music. “Curious” is a celebration of queer identity, highlighting pansexuality and sensual connection between people of all genders. Taveira debuted his artist project late last year with the release of “Heart.” The single landed on Billboard Pride’s Queer Necessities playlist and quickly garnered 100K streams, no small feat for a newcomer.
On both “Heart” and his latest release, “Curious,” Mike Taveira showcases his infectious R&B-pop sensibilities while tackling the complexities and vulnerability of sexual identity. With an underlying message that preaches to be true to yourself, whoever you love and whatever you identity as, Taveira is set to become a force in the evolution of queer pop music
