As integral figures of the record-setting documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare, her groundbreaking Blond Ambition tour, and the classic music video for Vogue (directed by David Fincher!)—it is difficult to overstate the impact Madonna’s dancers had on LGBTQ culture. But while they helped empower and encourage a generation, they were grappling with their own struggles. Just as quickly as they rose to fame, the limelight faded. Now, they share their stories of finding their own self-acceptance and courage. More than 25 years after the height of their fame, this inspiring group of dancers open up about their lives and in this intimate and touching Hot Docs hit.
