Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been listening to a series of gay and lesbian musicians. Back in November, I started listening to Cazwell. I loved the queerness of his record so much that it made me want to seek our other gay artists and get a greater sense of what’s going on in gay and lesbian music.

I immediately found two sources to begin exploring: Youtube and Logo. Logo’s series “New Now Next” and online site “The Click List” is a great source for finding gay and lesbian music videos. One of the musicians I first saw on Logo was Adam Joseph. Initially, I didn’t care much for his video, “Flow with My Soul:”

I’m not totally sure why I wasn’t into it at first, but I think it might have had something to do with the video’s attempts at some sort of urban street look. It just seemed a little too posed for me. But then I came across another video by Joseph, “Faggoty Attention:”

I have to say that I immediately loved this video’s blatant sexuality, its queerness. This has to be the queerest video I’ve ever seen. I love it! It’s so cheeky and fun. I like that it’s playing off of the straight male fantasy/fear of gay men coming onto them while playing off the gay male fantasy of seducing the hot straight guy. Plus the lyrics are just hilarious. This is now the song that I walk around singing in my head all day long!
