I come to you today with an urgent question; is it acceptable for a straight guy to enjoy the music of the Pet Shop Boys?
I can’t be the only person out there who suffers with this dilemma. There’s something overwhelmingly camp about them, like a Madonna album being delivered to your door by Liza Minelli.

I used to think I was comfortable in my sexuality, but these guys just throw me off course
Who can resist belting out “Go West!”? The Pet Shop Boys are pure, undiluted joy that has been digitised and pushed through your ears. I don’t care what people think of me any longer. I’m coming out of the closet. It feels liberating to say this out loud.
I guess that’s all I have to say about that. Instead, let us enjoy some videos of them in action:
