Gay Male Folk Singers

   Discussion: Gay Male Folk Singers
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 16 years ago
Last night I was talking to LORiabout our plans for a group marriage/ folk music kibbutz and realized we couldn't think of a single gay male folk singer to add to the group. We could think of plenty of lesbians. This seemed really strange to us. Can you think of any?

Nate Borofsky. Though I wouldn't necessarily put him totally into the folk genre but he's the only one that I could think of off the top of my head.

Then there are the male folk singers that I wish were gay...but that's another story.

Rufus Wainwright. Also not entirely folk, but still. Man, he's flambuoyant.
Geoff Back · 16 years ago
So not only is he a gay folk singer, but he floats as well? Man, is there anything he can't do?
Zach Back · 16 years ago
He can't impress Bea Arthur. He's tried, apparently. He told her he thought of her as a surrogate grandmother and thanked her for The Golden Girls, which got him through some tough times. Her response was "I'm not your fucking grandmother."

Wait.... NATE is gay?!?!?!

No way, man... I don't buy it.

No way, man... I don't but it.

*Crude joke goes here*
nate... Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
I have no idea what you're talking about.

Mamalissa! Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Edit thou not! Thy transgression has been recorded in the annals of an... um, nevermind.
stealthlori Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
Okay, if Nate's gay that totally works.

And I'm not sure I'd consider Rufus W. to be "folk", but sure, he'd make a great kibbutz addition. I don't think we have to be too rigid in our definitions here -- heck, I wanted to bring in Michael Stipe after all. :D

Is he the member of the family we'd want though? All the rest are real folk singers. We can't have two family members, that would be incestuous.
Josh Woodward Back · 16 years ago
Magnetic Fields.
Songbill Back · 16 years ago
Yeah, Stephin Merritt... kind of folkey

would you count ashley macissac? that's all i can think of, besides the people already mentioned.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 16 years ago
I forgot Ashley is gay, it is hard think of him as being anything but brilliant and nuts.

Now I need an Ashley fix, I haven't seen him in a few years.
stealthlori Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
but the idea of Ashley in our kibbutz scares me, a little. :)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 15 years, 11 months ago
I agree, he can visit but I don't think I'd want him there full time.

Jian Ghomeshi. Oh wait...
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years ago
Yeah, the folk part's debatable...*grin*

But I see my wrongdoings. ;o)

from Beau Dommage. I consider BD folk, even if maybe Michel Rivard's later solo stuff isn't.
100% dainty! · 16 years ago

Phoenix Back · 16 years ago
That's Nate Borofsky Chris was referring to (see above)
