This Liberace video is the definition of camp

In the video below, Liberace appears in 1968 on Red Skelton’s variety show, and the result is this fabulous mess of a number.

I don’t idolize the 1960s; there was much that was terrible which was accepted or overlooked during that time, including rampant sexism and racism.

But it was a time of garish colors and “groovy” music, and that was often awesome about it.

I still marvel at the fact that my older female relatives of that era will admit that they thought Liberace was a sex symbol, a ladies’ man, and never, ever, no way gay at all.
