I used Sam Fox to come out as gay...she later came out as gay!
After 23 years and more than a few disappointments, I now possess a rather good video record of my first time on stage—lip-synching and performing BROADLY to Samantha Fox's "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" at Flushing High School's 1987 "Mock Rock"!
I was not an outgoing type, so doing this was a watershed moment for me as a person and as a (then-closeted) gay kid.
The original S-s-s-s-samantha, S-s-s-s-samantha Fox!
I'd given up on ever seeing a video, but Lori, a kind classmate, happened to comment my Facebook that she had a copy. She happily sent me her Beta (!) original and I had it transferred today and...voila!
Video and my critique after the jump...
