In this, the first ever history of gay mens' relationship with popular music, Richard Smith gives a highly readable account of how pop since the Fifties has given gay men a platform denied them elsewhere. It shows how pop has both affected and reflected change -- paralleling the evolution of modern gay identities as they've moved from the margin to the mainstream. Other Voices explains why: From the moral panic caused by the pluralism of that other feared 'corrupter of youth' rock and roll in the Fifties, the management 'gay Mafia' of the Sixties and its 'cult of the lad, ' rock's embracing of counter cultural politics, glam rock, disco and club culture, punk, gender benders, boybands, female icons and lesbian performers, to censorship, the AIDS backlash and the battle with big business.
