Church of the Poison Mind

This 1983 pop song by British new wave band Culture Club plays at the drag club after True finishes. It is the song that Michel dances to, after saying that he had to “shake his thing”.

Church of the Poison Mind was the lead single from Culture Club’s most successful album, Colour by Numbers. It was a hit around the world, and went to #10 in the US, and #2 in the UK and Ireland.

The lead singer of Culture Club, Boy George, is gay, and cross-dressed as part of his 1980s stage persona, and Church of the Poison Mind is about Christianity’s attitude to homosexuality.
