Plus, that video! Those men! The dancing! Soul is in the musical. It would be eight more years until George Michael would come out to the general public, but the gifted, soulful and charismatic former Wham! Expertly layering one funky sample after another, the psychedelic, pansexual trio of Deee-Lite — fronted by a drag-inspired Lady Miss Kier — introduced a vibrant queer club-kid energy and aesthetic to the masses with this orgiastic track and accompanying video. It remains a magnetic gateway for anyone itching to let their freak flag fly.
These Bay Area gay punk pioneers found a hint of mainstream fame when they toured with Green Day on their Dookie run in , but it was their sexy lyrics and who-gives-a-fuck attitude that endeared them to a generation of queer kids — before that term was even fashionable.

With the help of house-band leader and Hedwig composer Stephen Trask, Mitchell finally got the guts to debut Hedwig live at SqueezeBox! His first wig was propped up by paper towel rolls, hot glue and staples.
Everything I did was completely in support of Hedwig. As both devoutly straight edge and proudly homosexual, their substance-free stance made them stand out in a time when bars, clubs and other intoxicating spaces comprised the few safe havens for LGBTQ people. There were many violent folks around at the time so it was a bit scary. When I came to the point where I was actively gay it took a bit of time to get comfortable and come out but I felt ready for whatever came my way.
