Ladies and Gentlemen and everyone in-between may we present Bea Arthur singing “Black Boys” from the musical HAIR in a benefit concert at the UN in NYC on May 26, 1988 for the Creo Society and Children with AIDS.
Uptight neighbor Arthur has launched a crusade to close a nearby gay bar, so Maude convinces him he should visit the bar before condemning it. A classic 1970s sitcom “gay episode” and still unfortunately somewhat relevant today.
Classic Camp from our beloved Bea Arthur as she and Madame get catt and discuss “The Rock” as in Rock Hudson and how he would “never ever take advantage of a woman” (HOW TRUE!) and then finish off by warbling an old Sophie Tucker tune.
