Happy Gay Pride Denver! As I’ve mentioned, I’m not big on crowds of drunk people, gay or otherwise, and seeing as I’ve been instructed by medical folk to take it easy for the next few days, I won’t be celebrating my gayness with the entire city. But that doesn’t mean I’m not proud of who I am or of the progress LGBT people have made. Quite the contrary! I love being gay and I’m in awe how far we’ve come. Music is kind of how I celebrate everything. Once upon a glitter soaked night club, I used to dj and work in a record store. I know. Very 90’s. Anyway, I thought I’d make myself a little YouTube mixtape in honor of the occasion featuring some serious gay superstars!
We’ll start you off slow with disco and lesbian icon Alicia Bridges. Please enjoy the gold lamé boots.
Do you wanna funk? Let drag pioneer and all around badass Sylvester show you how!
Best. Baseline. Ever. And oh yeah, Freddie Mercury was a pop god.
If gets any gayer than George Michael in leather, than I have yet to find it. The dance routine at 2:44 is mind-blowing, by the way.
No gay pride mix would be complete without Boy George. Holy crap. I wanted to be him so bad.
Erasure covering ABBA? Gay, gay, gay.
That should get me started and feeling festive. Tomorrow, I’ll post volume 2 which is nothing but big gay divas!
