Reid Lee brings to us today his hard-hitting video for "Save the Best," which focuses on domestic violence in the LGBTQ community.

Reid explains, "I’ve been in love, but love isn’t always healthy or good for you. As I went down memory lane with clearer eyes (and some therapy), I saw the reoccurring pattern of behavior in not only myself, but my partners as well. For me personally, it stemmed from alcoholism in my family that unfolding later in partners. Abuse can be subtle, it can sneak into your life under the guise of affection, or jealousy, or worry; and once it takes root, it grows quickly and can explode without warning.
This video, for me, is about how the nebulous line between affection and aggression is like the wave on the sand, constantly moving; and just how uncomfortable living in that space can be. The shoreline is constant, but just because you’re dry at the moment doesn’t mean you won’t be flooded when the tide comes in. You can wake up one morning and realize that you’ve slowly let yourself drown because the water kept saying “I love you.”"
