If ever there was a gay recruiting song, it was ‘YMCA’. It was every parent’s worst nightmare. In fact most of the Village People’s music was an assault on the heterosexual ideal. ‘YMCA” ‘Crusin’, ‘In The Navy’, ‘Macho Man’ and ‘Go West’ called out to all the young boys to come join the gay revolution. Really, they had nothing to fear. A straight boy wasn’t going to be seduced by the Village People. But, randy young gay boys, like me, suddenly were made aware that there was a place to find other people like ourselves. ‘YMCA’ did more for big cities than it did for the Young Men’s Christian Association, that’s for sure. Gay boys flocked to large metropolitan cities to find their people. ‘YMCA’ was our call to arms.
