Black Queer Town Hall, a platform committed to celebrating excellence by cultivating community, sharing knowledge, and uplifting voices in culture, rhas eleased its latest effort; a voting campaign aimed at educating and driving US citizens to vote, specifically targeting those in Pennsylvania, one of the most important swing states in the 2020 Presidential Election.

Created in partnership with Virtue, the agency born from Vice, and voting rights organization, And Still I Vote, The Most Office, is a musical tutorial starring LGBTQ icons, Bob the Drag Queen, Peppermint, and Virtue’s own Head of Creative, Americas, Genie Gurnani, while directed by Jake Wilson.

The music video opens up with a cameo from Wanda Sykes playing your everyday talking head as she discusses voter suppression on TV with Bob the Drag Queen and Peppermint watching from a living room. This inspires the two to educate voters on their options in fulfilling their civic duty. Cue The Most Office. The song begins and the two sing through the importance of voting, emphasizing the safety in Vote by Mail, with their words supported by graphic animations. Virtue’s Head of Creative, Americas, Genie Gurnani also plays a cameo throughout the video as the glittery mailbox. The second verse calls out Pennsylvania voters in their various counties, emphasizing their significance in this election, while reminding voters of key dates and their voter rights in showing up to polls or voting by mail.
