After seeing the trailer I thought it looked brilliant and if it doesn’t feature more Drag I’ll be disappointed! It never crossed my mind that there might be any negative reaction amongst any fans of Pet Shop Boys! I guess your claims of not being homophobic must be true otherwise you shouldn’t even be here 😉
If I thought what you’d think I wouldn’t even be here.

I still remember the reaction of a certain Mr.Neil on a Spanish psb newsletter back in 2002 when the video for I get along was released: "Shit, another f*** gay video". I wonder if that guy may be in this forum posting nonsense polls nonstop... Homophobia is very present in the psb fandom, unfortunately.

I think there is someone who wants to use this forum for his old problems in other forums 20 years ago.

I guess not being a fan of drags automatically makes me homophobic then. That was easy :) Didn't know it was as simple as that. Good discussion. Have to listen to Hotspot now, if you excuse me 😂

Completely agree, personally I don’t like drag acts/shows and avoid them, does that mean I am also homophobic? I find that insulting.

[...] or any other rock band with drag queens because it's not usual at all.
Faith No More did it with Easy in 1992

Neither do I. But I am fully aware of the band I am choosing to follow and the message they are trying to share. As a heterosexual man with some very close gay friends who believes in diversity, I find shocking the posts I sometimes read here.

    Great to see the boys in a proper video again. Really great to see Chris dancing in particular. Otherwise not a big fan of the video though.
