    It's funny you mention that because the president of the Recording Industry Association of America (Hilary Rosen) is lesbian!

    There are plenty of gay/lesbian recording artists though! Melissa Etheridge is gay. George Michael is a classic! LOVE him! Dangerous Muse and Johnny McGovern are good! Also I highly recommend the following:

    "Number One in Heaven" by Nemesis Rising (gay twin brothers).

    "Oh Yeah" by The Cliks

    I'm sure you've heard plenty of songs by gay/lesbian artists before...you just didn't realize they were gay/lesbian.

    There are already some really in-depth answers on here, so I'll just say I thoroughly enjoy "I Kissed A Girl" by Jill Sobule. And tAtu have the gimmick of being lesbians, and their songs are mostly lesbian love songs of sorts.

    Try K.D. Lang, Melissa Etheridge, and if you like oldies, the late, great Dusty Springfield. There's also the Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, to name a few.

    edit: WHOA Hadley, are ya serious? Wikkid! I live north of Chicago! Happy Dance Time!

    Source(s): I forgot Elton John... Queen perhaps?

    There are loads!

    Mellisa Etheridge is pretty well known, Tegan and Sarah, Beth Ditto of the gossip is. My friends have mentioned a gay rapper. I've read about a number of lesbain musicians at afterellen.com and their 'brother' site afterelton.com probably has info on gay male ones

  • 1 decade ago

    Melissa Etheridge, Lance Bass, Elton John, Jorja Fox, George Michael, Michael Stipe (I think), Moby (I think) etcetera...

    This may all change (hopefully), but I hear Clear Channel (and I hate this because I hate to like Clear Channel) is proposing to start the nations first all LGBT radio station in Chicago.

    I hope it Will be more than a bunch of catty queens because it is finally our time to have our romantic love songs.

    ......and if Straight people don't like it, they don't have to listen to the radio station.

    Check out God-des and She . . . they are amazing, I saw them perform live.

    They're best known for their song "Lick It," which they sang in season 4 of The L Word

  • 1 decade ago

    yeah!

    for instance Jim Verraros - So Deep

    It's very gay!
