Morning Aural: Pet Shop Boys

With the religious right accusing the gay community of singling them out (they weren’t kidding about that whole martyr complex thing, were they?), we thought it’d be fun to dust off the Pet Shop Boys classic, “It’s a Sin”.

The video, directed by the late Derek Jarman, is filled with all sorts of subtext about Neil Tennant’s Catholic school upbringing. By “subtext” we mean “muscle boys in underwear erotically dancing in unison while a whirling dervish nun looks on”. We gays are a subtle people.
