Strike a Pose

Director: Ester Gould, Reijer Zwaan Run Time: 83 min. Release Year: 2016


In 1990, seven young male dancers – 6 gay,1 straight – joined Madonna on her most controversial 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, when they were ambassadors to the world on behalf of the LGBT community during the height of the AIDS epidemic. STRIKE A POSE is a dramatic tale about overcoming shame and finding the courage to be who you are.

“A perfect love song by Gould and Zwaan to the exceptional men those boys turned out to be.” ~ The Huffington Post

“A loving, honest portrait of these men who were world-famous for a bright moment, and most importantly, what happens after the limelight goes away.” ~ Katie Walsh, LA Times
