In 1990, seven young dancers - six gay and one straight - joined pop star Madonna in her Blond Ambition tour, the most daring and controversial to date, which gave rise to the film Truth or Dare. Self-proclaimed mother of her dancers, the singer took advantage of the footage to make a stand on issues concerning gay rights, freedom of expression, and demystification of AIDS. This documentary reveals the surprising and exciting story of these exuberant dancers, who soon became sexual freedom icons, inspiring young people around the world. Berlin, 2016.
