I think it's beautiful!

I love the fact he's doing this to raise awareness of the fact that gay people can't marry here in Australia and to raise awareness of the YMCA and the youth work they do.

Apparently the CEO of YMCA Australia didn't speak to any Christian groups about the collaboration because she feels they wouldn't approve and of course, YMCA stands for Young Mens Christian Association.

The YMCA is more about young people in general these days though and that's why the CEO agreed to it...Boy George was horrified when he realised that gay rights in Australia aren't where they are elsewhere...and decided he had to do something to help a bit.

Did he not get done for kidnapping and assaulting a rent boy? Great face for gay rights! hmm

I think he was a pizza boy not a rent boy. Not that it makes any difference to the crime.

The guy was a male escort and Boy George got sentenced to 15 months in prison.

He was also on The Voice, which I thought an odd choice too based on his history. Not sure they'd have a man who imprisoned and beat up a woman as a coach.

I love the original and his version.
