Pet Shop Boys Turn Rory O’Neill’s Gay Rights Speech Into Dance Track: Listen To “The Best Gay Possible”

15b047bbea703cc9c0a019e2245398ac Pet Shop Boys Turn Rory O’Neill’s Gay Rights Speech Into Dance Track: Listen To “The Best Gay Possible”

The Pet Shop Boys are currently readying their Alan Turing stage project, A Man From The Future, and gearing up for their second North American tour in support of acclaimed 2013 LP Electric, but the duo still found the time to re-work a recent viral gay rights speech by Dublin drag queen Panti Bliss into a 10-minute dance track. Panti, whose real name is Rory O’Neill, appeared on Ireland’s The Saturday Night Show in January and commented on gay oppression and homophobia, causing a subsequent flood of commentary and even legal threats against the RTE broadcasting company.

In response to the outcry, O’Neill gave his “Noble Call” speech last month at Dublin’s Abbey Theatre, parts of which Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe pulled from and married to a synthy disco track.

Head below to hear the result — “The Best Gay Possible (Oppressive Dance Mix)” — and to watch O’Neill’s original Abbey Theatre speech.
