Team Dresch - Personal Best should be at top tantrik baba contact number
I didn't know Sylvester was supposed to have made a whole decent album.
Rufus at no. 50? Should be higher. Henrik, does this list qualify?
Where is Vampire Weekend?
It's eligible since Out is a gay magazine.
And yes, I agree it's an interesting list. Thanks JR!
they also forgot Sigur Ros, Green Day, Judas Priest, Suede (both London and lounge), Patrick Wolf, Grizzly Bear, Manic Street Preachers, Placebo, Of Montreal, Heart and Lily Allen
sigur ros? Its Icelandic there speaking bud. Not gay
The lead singer is gay and one of their videos portrays a young soccer player being gay bashed for kissing his boyfriend after scoring the winning goal.
and it's Hopelandic not Icelandic. They changed that though didn't they?
Technically, it's not "hopelandic" either, since the band doesn't even acknowledge that fan-created word. To Jonsi (the singer), it's just plain ol' gibberish.
This is funny. Cue it up at 3:43 and enjoy...
Actually, the entire interview is one giant train wreck, so it could be enjoyable to non-Sigur Ros fans too.
they got the whole making up your own words concept from the bands off the 4ad record label like Dead Can Dance and the Cocteaus who being on the goth side (in their early days) would also be a big attraction amongst gays. I'd also say Sufjan Stevens would draw a big gay fanbase because of his flamboyance. Same goes for the Polyphonic Spree.
This thread seems to count any males whose music has a hint of femininity or vice versa as 'gay'.
It's weird. It's a serious, well considered list using the 'obnoxious teenager' definition of homosexuality.

Have heard 54 of them and actually own 26 of them (with several others on my "to buy" list). My ears must be "gay" too.
We might as well start calling them quears! I want at least 20 other albums on that list!
It just means you like music that artists that happen to be gay like. It is interesting that it's pretty predictable other than the albums that everybody likes.
I really loved reading your blog. It was very well authored and easy to understand.
