Matt Woodbury/Mimosa Lesbians, Gays and folk music (138* d) RE: Lesbians, Gays and folk music 04 Sep 01

Ok, first, check this:


I haven't found gay men running up to me to claim solidarity in the folk circles I'm on the fringe of, they seem to not want to be as visible as I insist on being. One told me he was afraid of getting beat up leaving the Pub where we played at a session. I haven't encountered any violence or threats of violence – yet.

I go there for the music, so I'm not there to "hit on" anyone, do the women at that session get "hit on"? Just counting the ratio of gay men to "straight" at this one session, the numbers are about 1 (that I know of) in 10, just like in the larger society, maybe a little higher.

Recently I learned that there was an e-mail list for the session. I asked to be included 3 weeks ago, and haven't been. Homophobia? I don't know. Maybe other 'catters who go to this one will comment.
