In 1990, seven young male dancers – 6 gay, 1 straight – joined Madonna on her most controversial tour. On stage and in the iconic Madonna film Truth or Dare they showed the world – and a whole generation of young queer people – how to “express yourself”.

Strike a Pose introduces us to the dancers 25 years later, as they reveal the truth about life during and after the tour.

A dramatic tale about family, brotherhood, overcoming shame and HIV stigma and finding the courage to be who you are, this is an unexpectedly affecting film that will take you to places you don’t expect to go and will, in doing so, warm your heart. One of Outburst’s favourite films of 2016 and an absolute must for Madonna fans.
