FILM. Madonna’s Blond Ambition Dancers Tell All In New Doc ‘Strike A Pose’.

In 1990truth or dare, seven young male dancers – six gay, one straight – joined Madonna on her most controversial tour, the Blond Ambition Tour. On stage and in the iconic film “Truth or Dare,” they showed the world how to express yourself. Now, 25 years later, they reveal the truth about life during and after the tour. “Strike a Pose” is a dramatic tale about overcoming shame and finding the courage to be who you are.Strike A Pose poster

Wild, talented and barely twenty, the dancers set out on the trip of a lifetime. Their journey was captured in “Truth or Dare,” one of the highest-grossing
documentaries ever. As a self-proclaimed mother to her six gay dancers plus straight Oliver, Madonna used the film to take a stand on gay rights, freedom of expression and the fight against AIDS. Madonna’s flamboyant dancers became icons of sexual freedom, inspiring people all over the world to be who they are. Six dancers appear in “Strike a Pose” – Kevin Stea, Carlton Wilborn, Luis Camacho, Jose Gutierez Xtravaganza, Salim Gauwloos and Oliver S Crumes III. One of the original seven, Gabriel Trupin, died from complications due to AIDS in 1995 and is represented in the film by his mother, Sue Trupin.

BUMP THAT. Phylle. I Love Him.


The R&B jam I Love Him by Phylle has already been labeled the “future anthem for Gay Weddings everywhere” by blogger Nick Delmacy of Cypher Avenue. Yet the one thing that is undeniable is the song is dope and that Phylle can sing his ass off!

You may recognize Larry Carter from the webseries The Boyz Next Door. Like actor Donald Glover who performs under the name Childish Gambino, Cater performs under the name Phylle. Check out the full video for I Love Him below. And see Phylle perform the song live at The 3rd Annual Gentlemen’s Ball December 7th in Atlanta, Georgia.
