Theo X’s new music video is “an ode to young LGBTQ people everywhere”

Ask any LGBTQ person and chances are they missed out on going to their school disco with the person they really fancied, through fear of discrimination.

Danish artist Theo X is here to turn those missed teen moments into a heart-warming new music video for his disco-tinged single You Don’t Wanna Dance.

“When I wrote You Don’t Wanna Dance it brought back feelings of hitting puberty and being attracted to the same sex, but I didn’t have the confidence at an early age to allow myself to fall in love with boys,” Theo explained.

“The song is an ode to young LGBTQ+ people everywhere. People should be confident enough to love and not be afraid of themselves.”

In the brilliant music video, a young boy builds up to ask his crush for a dance at the school disco, turning the traditional heteronormative teen love story on its head for a same-sex twist.

Theo X has released two singles so far as he continues to build his profile across Europe.

He’s performed on Danish primetime TV, and in front of the Danish royal family.
