TMZ reports that openly gay artist Who Is Fancy is performing on an upcoming Dancing with the Stars with Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor, and that his management requested male-on-male dancing to illustrate his song, which is about a man in love with another man.
The answer was no.
I guess Dancing with the Stars can tolerate glass-closeted male dancers (and one out one), but any suggestion of out-in-the-open homosexuality is too distasteful, even one time, even in the perfect context. In 2015.
BROADWAY BARES (2008—2013, 2015)
Boy Culture turns 10, so look for a massive missive on some of my favorite-ever posts today. Until then, here's a fun-the-fun-of-it round-up of my Broadway Bares coverage.
I had never so much as seen a male stripper when my friend Jason pushed me hard to come to Broadway Bares with him. Manhattan's annual burlesque charity show for HIV/AIDS was a real eye-opener (and an effective wallet-opener, too). I quickly became enamored of, well, most of the guys on the stage. I wound up becoming a fixture at the shows (is that a..."good" thing?), and my coverage has delighted and, occasionally, horrified the participants. (The kindest take-down notice I ever got was when Guto Bittencourt took me to coffee to politely ask if I might consider removing a video of him in the nude. Some others were a little more direct, but no one was ever rude or freaked out.)
Unfortunately, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS spent an inordinate amount of time fighting me—they would never credential me, and when they did finally invite LOTS of press to cover a Solo Strips event, I didn't make the cut...and their marketing manager threatened to have me kicked out while demanding I stop taking photos. I skipped a year and got over it.
Anyway, I think most of the participants are, or should be, proud of their bodies and their artistic contributions to this unique event.
Following: All of my coverage of Bares and of its related Solo Strips events, roughly in chronological order...
Not sure what style of dance this is other than a straight copy of Madonna's original MTV Video Music Awards performance.
I had joked in an early post that it was inappropriate for Deen to dance to a song opining that it makes no difference if you're black or white, and yet even I was surprised that that lyric was cut out! (The whole song was shortened, but...)
Terribly embarrassing that the openly gay dancer has such bad taste ...
