Mamma Mia on Oxford Street

When asked to comment on the whole connection between ABBA, gays and drag shows, Benny Andersson (the bearded one back then) shook his head in disbelief and famously saidI don’t get it… did we look like transvestites or something?

Surrounded by rainbow flags, a giant poster for “Mamma Mia” (the movie) appeared this weekend on top of Sydney’s famous gay pub, The Oxford Hotel. It will probably come as some reassurance to Benny to learn The Oxford doesn’t attract too many drag queens, these days. In fact, the crowd is much more attracted to slightly older, overweight, hairy, bearded, bearish men.

How long before we hear Benny utter the words… I don’t get it… did we look like bears and cubs or something? :)
