What Was It Really Like to Tour with Madonna in the '90s?

April 2, 2017

Imagine getting a call from the biggest pop star of the day telling you that she wants you to dance on her upcoming world tour. And then imagine becoming a symbol of a cultural revolution in the process. Crazy, right?

Over 25 years ago, that’s exactly what happened for seven young male dancers chosen by Madonna to join her on her “Blond Ambition” tour, catapulting them into the public eye and making them symbols for the LGBTQ movement in the midst of the AIDS crisis.

A new documentary, Strike a Pose, catches up with the six still-living dancers 25 years after the tour. In it, they talk about their memories of life on tour and the ways it changed their lives. Check out a clip below, and tune in to Logo on Thursday, April 6 at 8pm EST/PST to catch the film in its entirety.
