Ivri Lider

Quote
Singer Ivri Lider is a household name in his native Israel, having sold over 160,000 albums and being named Male Singer of the Year in 2005 by Israeli radio stations. Ivri recently contributed to the soundtrack for (and appeared in) the 2006 film, "The Bubble"; he performs a song entitled, “The Man I Love.” Somewhat surprisingly, considering his mainstream popularity, Ivri is also openly gay. He famously came out in 2002 and has stayed at the top since then.

Virtual DJ Radio  

If you are a fan of gay dance music of ALL genres, this site is free.  Mixed LIVE, 24 hours a day, several days out of the week by dj's from all over the world.  I've become addicted.  All you need is Media Player, Winamp, or Real Player and you're set for a continues streaming dj'ed session.

And you can go into the "Beatbox" and chat live with the djs and make requests.  

DJs from Paris, Britain, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, US, Ecuador, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Belgium...wow...it goes on and on...

Avoid Thursdays...they play rap music and dancehall on that day.

Oh and Feral...

Thank you, thank you, thank you...for the above link for Tommy Boy.  U made me very happy.  Had forgotten to tell you that b4.  I'm a HUGE Thunderpuss fan.  And my oh my...the Sugar Babies 12".  

Sugar Babies (later Sugar Reef) was an underground house music club here in the late 80s-early 90s (that's where they got their name).  

Oh my...the memories...That should be a pussy-thumper.

I suppose it would depend on the specific artists. Enough rap and dancehall is vicious stuff that the entire genres have well-earned reputations. Still, there is Gay rap that is passable (even better once some kind soul has done a club remix of it) and even Gay rap that is almost good. Alas, I like music that goes "boom boom boom" and there just ain't enough pelvis for my taste in any of the rap I've heard. It doesn't suit my moods, and I can't imagine having a mood it would suit. Of course, my moods are by no means normal and I'm sure there are some people somewhere that would benefit mightily from Gay rap. I'm just not one of them.

Dancehall, on the other hand, has serious potential. I recall that a good portion of the initial outrage over dancehall was do to a certain amount of pique -- seems the 'mos in London found out just what they had been dancing to so vigorously in their own clubs. There was a rather tense afternoon a few years ago when one of my co-workers brought in a CD of it. After a world of assurances that there were no 'burn the 'mos' at all, nor even allusions to the word 'bang,' a good time was had by all. It was some seriously jamming stuff with beaucoup 'boom.' I'd still like to see a tribal remix (it's just not possible for there to be enough 'boom').

Anyway, it not being a Thursday, I'm off to listen to streaming radio :D

(Oh my... it's going Thumpa Thumpa -- I shall be there all evening!)

Outmusic

Quote
Outmusic is a network of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered musicians and supporters. Performers, composers, lyricists, producers, recording artists, activists, promoters, press/media and even non-musicians who believe in LGBT music have joined Outmusic over the years.

Outmusic was founded in 1990 when a group of musicians met at Dan Martin and Michael Biello's East Village apartment to share music and experiences. This became the open mics, which are still held monthly in New York.

Since its founding, Outmusic has participated in the community in many ways. Some years the organization sponsored festivals, other years there have been compilation CDs or special events. Of course, through it all there have always been the open mics, where new and seasoned musicians still come together with goals not unlike the original sessions: to share music and experiences in a safe and welcoming space.


Go ahead and root around for awhile. You'll find some names you've heard before and more than a few that you haven't.

I'm just not a rap music fan anymore.  I like the old school rap.  You know, when they sang about funky cold medinas, Michael Jackson being gay, and chicken that tasted like wood.  Gangsta rap ruined it for me.  And as far as dancehall, Jean Paul is about all I can stand and that's only because he's given me my first wet dreams in several decades.

On the other hand...I just watched a wonderful documentary on the life of Frank Loesser.  Yes, I live up to the stereotype--I'm a show tune queen!  

So sue me, what can you do meeeeeeeeeeee....
