    Link: We`re Not Going To Say The `80s Were Gay... - because using the word gay in that way is completely wrong and insensitive... but this.

    There`s nothing "gay" about that, that was the "normal" back in the 80`s.

    that`s not gay. this is gay. dead or alive look nothing like their name should perceive them as. just like los lonely boys. when i first saw a picture of them, i thought they were going to be a metal band, but they go and release heaven and make shake my head in disappointment.

    Matthew Wilder is homosexual, so yes, he is literally gay. He wasn`t out of the closet back in 1983 when he had this hit song, but he is out now.

    @Bacon_pie - Pete Burns of Dead or Alive is not just gay, she is a male-to-female transsexual who prefers to live as a woman and be known as a "she" - yet she doesn`t change her real name from "Pete"

    Pete Burns was actually pretty for a little while, about 20 years ago, until she ruined her face with plastic surgery.




    Not bad looking, for a man.

    @LandoGriffin, Pete Burns isn`t a "she", he`s male, and makes it clear he isn`t a transgendered female.

    At least the dance moves are still being used today. But 80s were the best years of music for many genre. Metallica, Pantera, Queen to name a few

    but wait, if I think Pete Burns was pretty, and I`m straight, then he couldn`t be a man, he HAS to be a woman, right? RIGHT?

    Well, the addition of the "jazz" dancers, which was more than likely a decision on the part of the band`s producer, heavily tipped the scale on the gay side. However, if you review the lyrics of the song, it is about a girl leaving him and wanting to get away as fast as possible. And he never wants another girl like her to work him over. Which is clearly either come out of the closet gay, or serial killer.

    First few lines of lyrics:



    Chorus:

    Not only is it closet, the song is about that screwed him over so hard, he was put off.
    If true, it is inspired music and...
