Mehcad Brooks on “Arrested”:
“Arrested is about this movement of love that’s sweeping across the country and the powers and institutions that would try to stop that love from spreading. Being arrested is symbolic in any protest. We have to be willing to be who and what we are loudly enough that all our old institutions hear us loud and clear.”
