The seven men who "unwittingly become icons for gay rights and sexual freedom" are featured in the film.
A new documentary focusing on the dancers who accompanied Madonna on her 1990 Blond Ambition World Tour, and subsequent Truth Or Dare film, will air April 6 on Logo, the network has announced.
Strike A Pose tracks down the male dancers "as they unwittingly become icons for gay rights and sexual freedom," says a release describing the project by filmmakers Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan, which was an official selection at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. Logo Documentary Films picked up the television rights to the film following its Tribeca screening.

Says Taj Paxton, VP of Logo Documentary Films: “These seven dancers from the Blond Ambition tour inspired a whole generation. From the halls of the ballrooms to center stage, their bold self-expression was a true pop-culture inspiration. We’re proud to showcase the men behind the woman and to stir the next generation of leaders and tastemakers in the LGBTQ community.”
The dancers taking center stage in Strike A Pose, which features scores of old footage and never-before-seen images, are Oliver Crumes III, Carlton Wilborn, Luis Camacho, Salim “Slam” Gauwloos, Kevin Stea, Gabriel Trupin (who died in 1995) and Jose Gutierez, the latter who had an onscreen role in Madonna's “Justify My Love” video and choreographed the “Vogue” video.
