The NFL gay player discussions recently made me wonder who the best gay male music artist is these days. My criteria although use your own if needed: 1. Currently making good music that is either popular or well respected (i.e. not lifetime like Elton John). 2. "Music artist" - can be current pop sound that is sometimes overly produced. 3. Either has come out as gay or widely considered to be 4. Former boy band guys like the one that came out a few years ago do not count (i.e. music not good). IMO, any music genre from hip hop to country still has elements of homophobia. I don't keep up with the music scene well enough to know if guys like Bruno Mars or Pharrell are gay or just metro. Could some artists not want to "come out" like NFL players or is their industry so liberal that it doesn't matter?
