Madonna was front and centre in Truth or Dare, one of the highest-grossing documentaries of all time. But the Blond Ambition tour also gave rise to a few dancers well-deserving of the limelight themselves. Twenty-five years ago, the film burst onto the scene with incendiary choreography and provocative stances on gay rights and sexual freedoms. The dancers became international icons with legions of fans, though some felt reluctant to embrace their newfound fame. Performing as liberated young men didn't necessarily translate to the real world, and now the dancers reveal the complicated journey that took place all those years ago. While the boys cherished certain aspects of their moment of fame, not all lived to tell the story today. For those who caused a commotion, they promise to try and tell the truth. Gabor Pertic
