Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Logo has announced the premiere date for their upcoming Madonna-themed documentary, Strike a Pose.

The feature, which made appearances at the Berlinale and Tribeca Film Festivals and revisits a set of dancers who worked with the pop star on her Blonde Ambition Tour 25 years ago, will debut on the network starting April 6 at 9 p.m. ET.

Dancers featured include Oliver Crumes III, Carlton Wilborn, Luis Camacho, Salim "Slam" Gauwloos, Kevin Stea, Gabriel Trupin (who died in 1995) and Jose Gutierez who starred in Madonna's "Justify My Love" video and choreographed the video for "Vogue."

The film, directed by Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan, is said to contain old footage from the tour including never-before-seen images and details how the collective "unwittingly become icons for gay rights and sexual freedom."

"These seven dancers from the Blond Ambition tour inspired a whole generation. From the halls of the ballrooms to center stage, their bold self-expression was a true pop-culture inspiration. We're proud to showcase the men behind the woman and to stir the next generation of leaders and tastemakers in the LGBTQ community," noted vice president of Logo documentary films Taj Paxton in a statement.

Originally, the dancers appeared in Alek Keshishian's 1991 documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare.
