Pet Shop Boys turn drag queen's speech railing against homophobia into dance track
UK electro pop outfit Pet Shop Boys have sampled an impassioned speech by Irish drag queen Panti Bliss, in which Bliss rails against homophobia, and turned it into a dance track.
Bliss, also known as Rory O’Neill, is considered one of Ireland's best drag queens. She made headlines last month following an appearance on an Irish TV talk show in which she named several organisations as homophobic. The remarks saw Bliss/O’Neill being threatened with being sued.
The feisty drag queen took to the stage at the Abbey Theatre to respond and it is this impassioned speech that the Pet Shop Boys have included in their latest dance track.
