queer icon at war #4

ihanda ang sarili para kumantah. ready kantah:

you can't stop the music. nobody can't stop the...

village people

leche kelangan pa ba ng explanation kung bakit naging queer icon ko sila?

formed in 1977, the village people made disco dance hits that became a part of the colorful gay culture. they are famous for their bouncy tunes, connotative lyrics and of course their gay-themed costumes. a few of their songs are macho man, can't stop the music, in the navy and their greatest YMCA.

original members were:
  • Alex Briley - the G.I./Sailor
  • David "Scar" Hodo - the Construction Worker
  • Felipe Rose - the Indian
  • Glenn Hughes - the Leatherman/Biker
  • Randy Jones - the Cowboy
  • Victor Willis- the Policeman
at present, every retro party would not be complete without the songs from the village people and the group is busy with world tours(minus glenn hughes who died on 2001).

so fags around the world get your hot ass up, dance and shout: waaay em si ey. waaay em si eheeey!!!



fairygodflower says: bakla ba sila?

bitchywitch says: ano ka ba?! ang obvious nga eh, lesbiana yang mga yan! gaga!

They have everything for you men to enjoy, You can hang out with all the boys ... It's fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.
-Village People, YMCA 1978
