Cartoon Cher Discussing Gay Fans And Camp Is Peculiarly Not Campy At All

by Dan Tracer May 11, 2016


In 1999, Cher let writer Benjamin Svetkey into her bedroom for a chat. When he entered the room, Svetkey found the pop icon dressed in leopard print and resting on a leopard print bedspread.

The recording of that interview has been turned into a short animated feature, and the two talk everything from motherhood to fame to the singer’s gay following.

“I think that my gay following is really respectful, and if it verges into being camp — camp is a very specifically gay thing,” Cher says in the clip. “That doesn’t bother me at all because I know that my gay followers really care about me and really love me, have loved me through thick and thin, and a lot of times have loved me more through ‘thin’ because that’s the way gay men are. They understand not being part of the whole.”
