Happy Pride month everyone . It now official that Boy George. The Village People. Martha Wash. Scissor Sisters. And the Pet Shop Boys. All of these artists can boast being represented by more than one song on this list of the greatest 101 LGBTQ songs and anthems of all time.
#31 "Il Adore" by Boy George  Taken from the album "Cheapness & Beauty"
The New York Times headline on July 3, 1981 was alarming: "Rare Cancer Seen in 41 Homosexuals" Though it was not named yet, AIDS had reared its hideous head and would eventually ravage the gay community throughout the 1980's and 1990's. It was a scary time to be alive, to witness such horrifying loss. This song I'l Adore" deals with the devastation caused by AIDS. Boy George's "Il Adore" is heartbreaking in its tear-inducing starkness: "Laughing screaming tumbling queen/Like the most amazing light show you've ever seen/Whirling swirling never blue/How could you go and die, what a lonely thing to do."
#61. "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" by Culture Club  From The Album "Kissing To Be Clever"
Boy George penned "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" about his heated off again/on again relationship with Kirk Brandon many listeners have thought this song was about Culture Club drummer, Jon Moss; but it wasn't. At first George didn't want the single to be released which lead the single (an eventual #2 blockbuster in the US and No.1 in the UK) because it stung too deeply and too painfully every time he heard it.
*Bonus* Boy Georges "Same Thing In Reverse"  Taken from the album Cheapness and Beauty.

Boy George's new music video for his single "Isolation" is out now on his Youtube page. Check out the new music video below that George had filmed himself a few weeks ago when he was in Australia filming The Voice which all came to a close when the Corvid19 outbreak went into effect to stop all production on the set. The music video features some really cool shots of him in Isolation in his home.
Shot on location in Gerringong Australia and in London. This has zero to do with what's going on now but perhaps everything in some ways. All filmed on my iPhone and edited by Dean Stockings on a MacBook.

Isolation by Boy George
Can I thank you
For your good advice
It went in one ear
And out the other
When I scream at you
You switch off inside
I feel the same
So tell me why I do it
I met a man
Who owns satellites
And it got me thinking about isolation
Thinking about isolation
Can I touch you
In the deeper sense
There are no rewards
For simple humanity
If I bite you back
What do I get
The space inside
I met a man
Who owns satellites
And it got me thinking about isolation
Thinking about isolation
You don't know
How it feels
To be here without you
You don't know
How it feels
To be alone
I met a man
Who owns satellites
And it got me thinking about isolation
Thinking about isolation
Thinking about isolation

1. Clouds 4:07
"Let me start with a question. Must everything be explained? I am trying, as an artist, to allow the listener to discern for themselves the sub text or subterfuge! Or the social, or emotional context.
I recently got a message from someone I worked with and was pretty close to. The tone of the message was attack. A one sided attack with zero consequence to anyone else but me.
If he had tried to find a middle way, we could have had hope but I was left thinking 'It’s his grey cloud to carry around. Not mine.'
Hence this song about clouds. Which, like humans, drift in and out of your life.
Sometimes there is no response but that of a song. A song can say what you cannot clearly speak. It can say it in a simpler fashion. With a sweet, mournful melody."
- Boy George Clouds
►March 2nd 2020 - New Boy George Music Video Clouds Is Out Now!
A new Boy George solo album is coming. The album has been remixed by Benny D . The new album title has yet been released. George announced today the first new track from the untitled album.
The new single "Clouds". It's a dark haunting track but yet very poetic track from him. The new music video was also announced today on Youtube. This is by far one of George's best masterpieces.
The metaphors are endless
A bunch of oxymorons
Trying to convince us of their view
And what can be said
About what happened yesterday
There's worse going on
If you really want to know
May clear the sky
And let the sunshine
Fall on us again
They're just clouds
Full of rain
Big grey clouds
Filled with pain
Hanging over you
Hanging over me
They're just clouds
It's all they'll ever be
It's all they'll ever be
Are you telling me your sorry
Or is it still me that you blame
Do you shake like Little Richard
Every time you hear my name
Instead of love
The day I stole Laura
Was the day I grew to adore her
May clear the sky
And let the sunshine
Fall on us again
They're just clouds
Full of rain
Big grey clouds
Filled with pain
Hanging over you
Hanging over me
They're just clouds
It's all they'll ever be
Hanging over me (Say 2 x)
They're just clouds

►February 15th 2020- New Boy George Song premiere at Faenas Hotel Miami FL
There is a brand new song out written by George and Roy Hay along with Amanda Ghost called "The Cook, The Thief , The Wife And her Lover" is out now on George's sound cloud page. The song is featured in the new stage production at The Faenas Hotel in Miami. If you live in Florida and have a day to see it go ahead and book your tickets now. Tickets
Boy George on writing this new song .....
"I had a field day writing this song," shares music icon Boy George on his original theme song for The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover open now at Faena Theater.
“It’s not on the menu, but there is a price. A dinner date with destiny, that money cannot buy.” Consider those lyrics an invitation to the hottest ticket in town where you’ll find yourself seated in the blood-thirsty dining room of Le Hollandais in a completely immersive theater experience.
Boy George was commissioned to write an original theme song for the show’s final number, which splices together a litany of pop hits. “I was delighted to be asked,” says the multi-hyphenate artist. “I remember when the film first came out. It was fun to go back and rewatch it and try to come up with a song that summed up the whole story as succinctly as possible”, he added.
The spellbindingly sadistic story line tells the tale of a dramatic love triangle narrated by the restaurant’s omniscient waiters that unfolds between a ruthless restaurant owner, his wife and her lover.
“I call the chorus the ‘Bowie Mambo’,” he laughs, referring to David Bowie (one of his chief musical influences also known for his theatrical flair) and the track’s Latin rhythm. The tune has a markedly tango beat, an intended homage to Faena’s Argentine owner, Alan Faena. “I wanted it to be as dramatic as possible to go with the setting of the show,” he added.
Throughout the performance, actors blend seamlessly with Faena Theater’s waitstaff as they wend their way through the audience, drawing guests into the gripping logomachy and mayhem that challenges them to question their deepest human instincts. The show’s sybaritic three-course menu comes from Miami culinary luminary Michelle Bernstein—a Michelin-starred James Beard winner—who puts a distinctly Floridian twist on classic French and European cuisine.
Blurring the lines between fantasy and reality, the boundary-pushing production keeps viewers on the edge of their seats until George’s song closes out the performance in a show stopping crescendo. “People will leave feeling emotionally and mentally stimulated,” he says, and without a doubt, humming the smash song’s catchy chorus for days to come.

House of Truth is a truly unique and infectious song; beginning with a soulful refrain and driving beat. Boy George and Jamie both take turns with the early verses which in turn build to a gospel infused crescendo. The full breadth and range of Jamie’s 4-octave spanning vocals are showcased as the duo are joined by a joyous gospel choir. “I am very lucky to have Boy George as a mentor. The whole process of making and recording the song and music video with such an icon has been very surreal” says Hannah.
Jamie Hannah is a British singer-songwriter with an extraordinary voice. His incredible vocal capabilities were honed at the Royal College of Music, where he trained in opera. Fusing this training with a variety of genres results in pop music with true passion, unlike anything else you’re likely to hear right now.

►May 29th 2019 Boy George Bio-pic MGM Movie Announced
It’s a good time to be in the musical biopic train! Just announced today by MGM studios Boy George & Culture Club are getting a bio-pic movie. It was just announced today that MGM will produce the film based on the life of Boy George, It will be written and directed by Sacha Gervasi. The movie will feature the humble beginnings of a young man who knew he was destined for fame. It’ll follow his upbringing, his coming-of-age, his battle with his sexuality — all the good stuff that we have seen in the other popular biopics. Unlike Mercury and John, Boy George has had more fun with the tabloids joking to be the first drag queen to win a Grammy Award "Thank you America, you got good taste, style, and know a good drag queen when you see one," George said at the Grammy's as Culture Club won the Best New Artist Award (via satellite from England). While today that may not sound outlandish, in 1984, as highlighted by a New York Times article at the time, some Americans didn't know what to do with George and his gender-nonconformity. Or the time Culture Club debuted on Top of The Pops for the first time. The headlines read" Was it a boy? or Was it a girl?" You can expect this to spice things up a bit.
Written and Directed by Sacha Gervasi
Producer: Kevin King Templeton & Paul Kemsley
Executive Producer George O'Dowd & Jessica De Rothchild
George had a fun tweet today as well with this announcement!
►May 28th 2019 Boy George & Culture Club sign a deal with Primary Wave
Boy George believes he has lost hundreds of millions in royalty fees over the decades and wants to stop the bleeding.
Culture Club are linking up with independent music publishing firm Primary Wave to recoup the rights — and future profits — to hit songs like “Karma Chameleon” and “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?”.
In a deal to be announced, Primary Wave will announce an undisclosed stake in Culture Club’s limited rights to its music in exchange for marketing the award-winning band’s songs — and attempting to win back its remaining copyrights.
Music publisher BMG, which owns the band’s publishing rights, would be one target, sources said.The new deal comes at an opportune time as Culture Club and Boy George plan to go on a world tour in 2020. Additionally, MGM is making a film on Boy George, whose androgynous looks and soulful voice captivated the ‘1980s.
“My songs are very precious to me,” Boy George told The Post. “They are the story of my life. I wanted to partner with Primary Wave as they respect the legacy but also understand I want the songs heard.”
“Let’s be honest, he’s just f—ing cool, he was very, very original and ahead of his time,” his manager Kemsley said. “He’s more than just a singer, he’s an icon. He’s a trailblazer. I’m expecting big things.”

"The Voice Australia" was back on Sunday night for season eight, and coach George brought the house down with drama.
Boy George stormed off the set during the show's blind auditions phase after a testy exchange with one of the contestants.
Twenty-year-old Daniel Shaw had just finished a performance of "Beneath Your Beautiful" accompanied by piano, and all of the coaches had pressed the "I Want You" button. But things got tense when George asked Daniel contestant if he played guitar.
"Can you play guitar"? George asked
"I can play guitar but no one really cares if I play guitar," Shaw responded.
"No one cares?" George asked while the man shook his head.
George said "I do."
"What a rude thing to say"
"I think after that comment, go with Delta," he went on, referring to fellow coach Delta Goodrem before eventually storming off the stage.

The official music video for the new Boy George & Culture Club single "Life" is out now. The music video has been directed by Rankin the accompanying video of the most intensely personal song Boy George has written to date begins with his iconic makeup styling but later sees him stripped of his signature make-up and hat. His emotion, his tears, captured and ultimately countered, with a message of hope. Revealing his vulnerable side, Boy George has said the video is a tribute to his many fans who have stood by him throughout his career. Watch the video here.
The band will perform ‘Life’ on The Graham Norton Show this Friday. The song, produced by Future Cut, tells of battling and beating the darkest times, through the support of others and by holding on to this hope. Of the track, Boy George says:
“John Lennon said 'LIFE’ is what happens while you are busy doing other things, but sometimes you have to stop and look with sadness and pride at what you have done and created in your own life and value the rich complexity of it!
As the lyricist of ‘Life’, I wanted to express something truthful, honest and bare while carrying an uplifting message of hope. It's my story but it's a story so many people will resonate with. A story of recovery, transformation and the start of a brand new journey which has already brought Culture Club well deserved accolades. It's a song about second chances and new beginnings, enlightenment, spiritual growth, and personal redemption.”

Boy George Fashion Model for DIOR
Boy George appears to be in the midst of having a mini professional renaissance. While for some of us, the man who crooned, “Do you really want to hurt me?” from beneath half-closed, heavily-shadowed eyelids never went away, he’s now reaching a whole new generation thanks to a roll on The New Celebrity Apprentice and his handful of cheeky one-liners during his cameos on the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But while the pop star known for his gender-bending take on fashion has long been a muse of avant-garde designers, for the first time he’ll actually get to star in his very own campaign, serving as the new face for Dior Homme’s Spring campaign.
The menswear brand released the images for their new ad campaign early Tuesday morning, featuring their Spring/Summer 2017 collection creative directed by Dior Homme’s head designer Kris Van Assche, styled by Olivier Rizzo, and photographed by Assche’s longtime collaborator, Willy Vanderperre in the studio and the streets of Paris.
In the pictures, Boy George wears his signature tall fedora festooned with pins, much like his black button-down which has been layered under a crisply tailored blazer and black leather bondage-inspired suspenders.
Boy George WINS as 1st Project Manger on The New Celebrity Apprentice!
What a start to The New Celebrity Apprentice! Our hero and ambassador, Boy George, kicked off the season as the first winning project manager, earning $50,000 for Safe Kids Worldwide.
Boy George’s charm, warmth, and creativity shined throughout last night’s two-hour premiere. He led Team Arete in their task to organize an event highlighting the five-minute Tyover, created by the amazing Tyra Banks. You have to hand it to the fellas. I loved seeing all those tough guys (and even Jon Lovitz) apply makeup with such a gentle touch. It’s true: they came, they saw, they contoured.
And what a pleasure to see Boy George in the studio working on a song that helped Team Arete bring home another victory. Congratulations to the hilarious Jon Lovitz and St. Jude, a wonderful charity.
As promised, Governor Schwarzenegger was tough but fair. He stressed the importance of going all out for something you believe in. That’s exactly what we do at Safe Kids to save lives every day. As Boy George said, there’s nothing worse than losing a child to an injury that could have been prevented. We are empowering everyone to protect kids at home, on the road and at play. Join us and say "I'm In" to get your digital Safe Kids Kit to help us protect kids.
Generations Of Love 2017
Generations of Love has been remixed and remodeled for the new year with exclusive remixes done by Christopher Poxx and Phunx Investigation along with the Tommy Novy remix. The club anthem is expected to be big on the dance floor this summer. This will mark the 100th remix that has been done for the massive single. Generations Of Love was a huge club anthem in the early 1990’s it went to No.11 on the US club play charts and became a Top 40 hit in the UK.
Jesus Loves You's 'Generations of Love' a highlight from 1990. After the mayhem and mania of the 1980s, a decade he can feasibly claim to have owned, Boy George kicked off the ‘90s with the more understated, criminally underrated Jesus Loves You project. To this day it sounds like a paean to a lost generation, a huge regretful sigh. Here new collaboration between Boy George and Cristian Poow on this club anthem The hit song including remixes by Tom Novy and Cristian Poow and Phunk Investigation.
George has teamed up with DJ/Producer Roger Sanchez on the house track Hold On. The new single has been released on Itunes with two releases.
Hold On (Radio Edit) and Hold On (Extended Mix)
Tough Love & Roger 'S-Man' Sanchez combine again this time with Boy George to bring a deep and rolling anthemic record sure to be a club hit! Release out on

Culture Club's The Greatest Hits CD collection gets released in Japan with SHMD
Led by the notoriously androgynous Boy George, Culture Club took the world by storm in the 1980's. Their mix of pop, soul, and reggae may not have been unprecedented, but it certainly was a refreshing break from the scads of sound-alike New Wave bands cluttering up the airwaves.
A singles band on pareil, Culture Club is well served by GREATEST HITS is RELEASED on June 8, 2016, a concise culling of their career highlights. While they were certainly not without their festive moments (the lilting, calypso-tinged "I'll Tumble 4 Ya," the sing-along sunniness of "Karma Chameleon"), George and his pals were at their best on the more melancholy, mid-tempo tunes like ("Do You Really Want to Hurt Me;" and "Time (Clock Of The Heart), where the Boy really got a chance to burn his torch at both ends.
Three Decades later, Culture Club's best moments still stand up a hell of a lot better than many of their contemporaries' records. They are touring Worldwide this year on the 2nd leg of the "Tribes World Tour 2016 "

Culture Clubs Colour By Numbers Gets a Surprise Coloured Vinyl
"Colour by Numbers was Culture Club's most successful album, and can even be considered as one of the most popular albums from the 80s in general. Scoring five Top 10 hit singles, this set of songs dominated the album and singles charts for a full year and a half (86 weeks in total), both in the US and in Europe.
With its infectious songs, and outrageous music videos that were played all over MTV, and Boy George as a charismatic appearance, the band was a media magnet back in 1982,1983 and 1984. The vocals from Boy George sounded as warm and soulful as ever, resulting in both the burning down the house churner "Church Of The Poison Mind" and the irresistible county catchy "Karma Chameleon".
In the 80s music was, in many cases, flamboyant, fun, sexy, soulful, colorful, androgynous, and carefree, and this album captured that spirit perfectly. A must for any collector of 80s music, and the artistic and commercial pinnacle of a band that still attracted new fans 30 years later."

The Do's and Dont's while attending a Culture Club Concert Gig!
Am I pretty sure most of you die-hard fans have attended the first leg of the Culture Club Tribes World Tour this past Summer? It was a fantastic set of songs and many highlights that came with each show. I for one have attended a hand full this leg of the tour and let me tell you the Boy is very serious when you go to a Culture Club concert.
Are you there to have fun am I right? Not be on your cell phone taking zillion photos or talking to your neighbor about what's the next song?
Here is a list of the Do's and donts' while attending a Culture Club concert.
DO: Make sure you get up and dance, everyone is there to see Culture Club they are not all focusing on you and watching you dance, plus you will never see these people ever again unless it's your pen-pal that is with you or someone from the Boy George and Culture Club community. lol
DO: Make sure you scream real loud when Roy Hay ask you too when Do you Really Want To Hurt Me is over. At one gig in New York City at the Beacon, fans went nuts over Do you really want to hurt me it was a record set of 2 minutes of people cheering.
Don't: Please don't bring a Culture Club record to the concert George gets very upset when people hold up album flats at the Culture Club shows, he doesn't understand why the fans keep bringing those records.
Don't: Please don't take pictures at the show, George is very highly against the show, he wants you to enjoy the show live not by looking at it through your cell phone.
Don't: Please don't talk during Victims, George has only had two shows when the audience has not talked. One time in Japan and one time in Philadelphia. George sets himself off to a magical place when he performs Victims he doesn't want his moment to be ruined when he hears people talking in the background it gets him very upset.
Don't: Don't be reading on the internet with your cell phone and looking at magazines or news, If George sees you on your phone he will come to you and ask you "What you are doing?" He will say "Looking at your phone huh?"
