Pet Shop Boys - Pet Shop Boys Produce Track Based On Gay Rights Speech

British pop act Pet Shop Boys have released a new track based on a gay rights speech by an Irish activist.

Drag queen Panti Bliss, real named Rory O'Neill, gave the speech damning homophobia in Ireland at an event held at Dublin's Abbey Theatre in February (13) and he was praised by stars including Stephen Fry and Madonna after a clip was shared on YouTube.com.

The West End Girls hitmakers have now made their support clear by turning the speech into a new song called The Best Gay Possible, featuring 10 minutes of the speech set to trance music.

After the track was unveiled on the group's website O'Neil took to his Twitter.com account to voice his approval, writing, "Pet Shop Boys made an amazing track out of my Noble Call speech. Seriously, they did."
