Subject: RE: LGBT+ Folk Songs and Musicians?
Now that I think about it, Shakespeare's sonnets are interesting. Not folk, not songs, but from the early 1600's. If you read all the sonnets from start to finish there is a sort of story unfolding and there is speculation that Shakespeare developed feelings for the young man to whom he addresses many of the sonnets.

One of my fave books.
