While disco was a form of black commercial pop music and a craze among black gay men especially, it did not catch mainstream attention until it was picked up by the predominantly white gay clubs of New York in the early 1980's. Latinos and women embraced disco as well, and the music eventually expanded to several other popular groups of the time.

It eventually reached Europe before becoming infused in mainstream pop and dance music worldwide.
'House' is strongly influenced by elements of soul- and funk-infused varieties of disco.
