If the press photos are any indication, the Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus is sexing things up for their annual holiday concert. In one, four hot-pants-wearing, chiseled-ab’d songbirds surround drag queen Stella D’Oro as she decorates a suspiciously dong-looking Christmas tree. A fifth guy is sitting on the ground, legs spread, with a bow on his crotch. So will the 90-member group ditch the suits and cumberbuns in favor of bulge-tastic attire, or is this just a ploy to draw in the horny masses? “There’s one number that will be on the risqué side (‘Santa Baby,’ sung live by D’Oro),” says artistic director Joe Buches, but the rest will follow a traditional, more family-friendly format. So don’t expect to hear jams like “Silver Balls” or “Here Cums Santa Claus,” but, hey, that other stuff can be fun, too.
