keep hearing gay references to gogo dancers[edit]

I keep hearing gay references to gogo dancers, mostly from straight people and in the media/entertainment. This page does not satisfy my wanting to know what it is and how it fits with where I keep hearing it.

"When the republicans started taking office and put a banned to them?" Is this for real?
--Clearly not, as they are merely talking about putting a baned to them. --24.16.18.99 04:49, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Is there such a thing as an 'expert' on go-go dancing, as would be implied by the use of the {expert} tag? 68.184.150.249 03:47, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm an expert on go-go dancing. Most of this article was rewritten by me in February 2008. After I did so, I removed the "expert attention needed" tag, since I had given it my attention. Keraunos (talk) 07:43, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

It has more of a history than the article's current text suggests. A form of go-go dancing was popular and mainstream, at least on television and in live performances of pop & rock music, from the early 1960s into the early or mid 1970s. It was pretty common on certain music-oriented variety shows. Someone's got to be an expert on popular dance history, if not also music televison from that era ("Mr. Dante Fontana" comes to mind), if not specifically an expert on the dance form itself. I only tagged the article very recently, in part to dissuade some of the vandalism going on. Give it a chance. :) —mjb 04:19, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

"Gay go-go dancers" section needs expansion[edit]

I know very little about this, and after reading the section still know very little about it. The first question that comes to mind is: where? It's important because laws and attitudes in many places were changing in the 1960s (for example, here in Britain homosexual sex was first decriminalised in 1967). If, as I suspect, the section refers specifically to the US (or parts of the US) then it's important it says so. 86.132.137.5 (talk) 03:28, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Please decide whether to capitalize go-go[edit]

I visited this entry to get the correct form and couldn't find it. In some cases it's capitalized Go-Go, in other cases it's not. These are the kinds of issues that should be decided when an article is being written, because it affects other articles as well. AAAAGGGGGHHHHH! Kinkyturnip (talk) 18:34, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

US-centric[edit]

It needs one of those US-centric/not-a-world-view notices I think.

Does not go into modern go-go dancing[edit]

The girls that dance on stage or in cages at raves are referred to as go-go dancers. They do not dance topless, or dance for tips. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.77.113.28 (talk) 15:09, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

I have seen many Go Go dancers receive tips. I'm sure some go topless in the right circumstances, too. Just because dancers you know dont do it (or at least say they dont), it doesnt mean all of them dont. Yonskii (talk) 23:20, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
