This is the strange video for the strange pop song by the Pet Shop Boys, "New York City Boy":
Neil Tennant, in his own words in the Advocate:
When I was I younger I didn't want to be gay. Not because I was scared of the sexual thing; I didn't want to be a clone. Now this was in the late '70s. I didn't want to wear a checked shirt and grow a mustache--that's what you had to do, and everyone did.[...]
I think we've come a long way since then. The big thing that changed was when ecstasy came along in Britain. The big gay clubs like Heaven started having mixed nights in the late '80s. That was a brilliant thing, because if you were bi-curious--as many people are, without having to be completely homosexual--it was great, because when you released people from having to define themselves sexually, much more interesting things happened.
