Thread Name: HOMOPHOBIA in British Folk Movement
Subject: RE: HOMOPHOBIA in British Folk Movement
I do not find the song homophobic. I can also recall the time when Geoff (also in Whitby) stood to sing another song of a not disimilar ilk "My best friend is a drag queen called Nancy" (also not homophobic IMO) and realised half way through that there was a 6' transsexual goth sitting directly behind him. He carried on the song and everyone including the said goth seemed to enjoy it. Neither song is about poking fun at anyone or about prejudice they are just songs that deal with real life.
