Truth or Dare changed our lives.
As budding young twinks, we caught the Madonna documentary and finally felt like we found a community. Our community. Our forever community.
A lot of that came from our delusions that we’d be best friends with Madge if only we had the chance to hang out with her. But even more of that undeniable sense of belonging came from her backup dancers. They were among the first positive portrayals of gay men we’d ever seen on the big screen.
And they were hot, which didn’t hurt.
Starting tonight, The Texas Theatre presents the documentary Strike A Pose for four screenings through January 26. The film chronicles the lives of seven young male dancers who took part in Madonna’s 1990 “Blonde Ambition” world tour, becoming de facto role models in the gay community in the process.
It’s a rare glimpse into the world of fame and celebrity from a different angle and it’s utterly fascinating.
Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it. Strike a pose and buy a ticket!
