STRIKE A POSE documentary

The documentary was FABULOUS, courageous, relevant, & inspirational.

 

I was initially excited when the project was announced & it surpassed my expectations. The dancers spoke candidly about their time together WITHOUT throwing Madonna under the bus once. I didn't detect any bitterness or blame when they all opened up about their personal struggles after Blond Ambition (the part where Luis talks about how the scene/ drugs become less & less glamorous... now bitch! That T was scolding hot).

 

Though I don't agree with how the lawsuit was handled, Gabriel's mother(?) certainly put things in perspective; it was a different time then & he just wasn't ready to be out in such a public way. And how on Earth could Madonna stay mad at Kevin? He was so CUTE back in the day! Looking like that, he could take me to court anytime :wow:

 

My love for José Gutiérrez Xtravaganza is BEYOND words & the scene with his mother brought me to tears! As a kid, I watched him vogue down in Paris is Burning. As a teenager, I idolized his open flamboyance in Truth or Dare. Now as an adult, I'm blessed to hear his wisdom in Strike a Pose. UGH! Talk about a full circle moment. These men came together & delivered something really special. I Can't wait to get the DVD!
