Strike a Pose

What does it take to express yourself? The surprising and moving story of Madonna’s most famous troupe of dancers.

In 1990, seven young male dancers - six gay, one straight - joined Madonna on her most controversial tour. On stage and in the iconic film Truth or Dare they showed the world how to express yourself. Now, 25 years later, they reveal the truth about life during and after the tour. STRIKE A POSE is a dramatic tale about overcoming shame and finding the courage to be who you are.
