Screen grabs from the latest video by Manchester drag/pop-parody act Queens Of Pop, whose previous hits include “Kerry’s On The Coke Again”.
Their latest video is a parody of Will.I.Am’s “Bang Bang” performed as black & white minstrels, to the tune of the Charleston. Both perfromers appear in black face with enlarged jazz-hands, and the lyrics include jokes about black men having big willies, black men infecting others with AIDS and gay black men being rapists.
Queens of Pop will be performing on the main stage at this year’s gay Pride festival in Manchester.
If, like me, you don’t want this disgusting racist nonsense given the stamp of approval by Manchester’s most popular gay event, or performed live to a crowd of thousands as a representation of the best of Manchester’s gay scene, email Manchester Pride directly here: http://www.manchesterpride.com/contact/
Or you can sign this petition: https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/manchester-pride-act-out-say-no-to-racism-at-manchester-pride-3
The petition is closed as of 7/29, but you should still tell the pride organizers how badly they’re fucking up.
