The video for 'Platinum' features Gray and porn star Mickey Taylor, as lovers in a hotel bedroom. Jordan Gray spoke to Gay Star News, telling the publication: "It’s pioneering because it features the first cis male-trans female love scene in a mainstream release,’ Gray told Gay Star News. "He knew his way around the bed! I was directing at the same time as well as starring in it, so it was mildly awkward. I was like, “kiss me here”, “roll over here here!”, “take these off!”. "But it’s important because people will get to see trans love normalized. It’s really important. Everyone gets to do it, why can’t I? It shouldn’t be controversial at all." Watch the video here:
