STRIKE A POSE - Madonna Dancers

This vibrant documentary captures the lives of seven of Madonna’s young male dancers who in 1990 - 6 gay, 1 straight - joined Madonna on her most controversial stage tour, Blonde Ambition. Unwitting ambassadors of Madonna’s then controversial campaign to celebrate and accept alternative lifestyles, they were beacons of a nascent cultural campaign who had to reconcile their public personas with their private lives. Now, 25 years later, they reveal the truth about life during and after the infamous tour, dramatically revealing a quest to overcome shame and find the courage to be who you are. The documentary premiered at Berlin and the Tribeca to critical acclaim.

"A perfect love song to the exceptional men those boys turned out to be."
