THE resource on the net for the history of GLBT music
September 24, 2012 11:20 AM   Subscribe

Queer Music Heritage is a sprawling website about the history of queer music. You can listen to twelve years' worth of monthly radio shows (link goes to the first year, 2000); take a look at the Queer Music History 101 overview; check out the extensive photo galleries in the female impersonators section; or read through the blog, which features interesting tidbits from gay musical history, like this overview of the Sissy Man Blues.

And a shoutout to the book Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World, 1890-1940. I found Queer Music Heritage by googling some of the songs listed in this book- almost every one of them has a page on this site.

Just last night on Queer Music Heritage I was reading Minette: Recollections of a Part-Time Lady, a scan of the rare memoir of a drag performer. (disclaimer: the creator of the site, JD Doyle, is a friend of mine.)
