Strike a Pose Viewing and Discussion

8/14/2019 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM PT

In 1990, seven young, wild, and talented dancers joined pop star Madonna on her most controversial world tour. Their journey was captured in Truth or Dare, one of the highest-grossing documentaries ever. As a self-proclaimed mother to her six gay dancers plus straight Oliver, Madonna used the film to take a stand on gay rights, freedom of expression and the fight against AIDS. Madonna’s flamboyant dancers became icons of sexual freedom, inspiring people all over the world.

25 years later, they reveal the truth about life during and after the tour in the documentary Strike a Pose. The film is a dramatic tale about overcoming shame and finding the courage to be who you are.

SFV member Sue Trupin is in the film representing her late son Gabriel Trupin, one of Madonna’s 7 dancers. He died of AIDS in 1995. She’ll do a Q & A after the screening.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”

donor since 2013
