'Lovingly detailed and exhaustively researched - easily the most readable and comprehensive guide I've seen to this fascinating hidden history'
Tom Robinson, musician, broadcaster and long-time LGBT rights activist
The definitive book on the influence of LGBT performers on modern music
From Sia to Elton John, Dusty Springfield to Little Richard, LGBT voices have changed the course of modern music. But in a world before they gained understanding and a place in the mainstream, how did the queer musicians of yesteryear fight to build foundations for those who came after?
Pulling back the curtain on the colourful world that shaped our musical and cultural landscape, Darryl W. Bullock reveals the inspiring and often heartbreaking stories of internationally renowned stars, as well as lesser-known names, who have led the revolution from all corners of the globe. David Bowie Made Me Gay is a treasure trove of moving and provocative stories that emphasise the right to be heard and the need to keep up the fight for equality in the spotlight.
'A look back at a century of LGBTQ music, the history lesson serves as a primer of a movement in which Bowie was key'
Billboard's 'The 5 David Bowie Books You Need to Read'
'An excellent book'
Gay Star News
'A fascinating book, a fascinating subject - oh to have a look around Darryl's record collection!'
Grant Stott, BBC Radio Scotland
'Darryl W. Bullock leaves no stone unturned in his analysis of this crucial part of LGBT culture'
Men 24 magazine
'A thorough and enjoyable tour through LGBT history that underlines how important music is to us, and how important we are to music'
Rod Thomas, Bright Light Bright Light
'A wonderful encyclopedia of queer music, an encyclopedia with a plot: the history of one hundred years of social change... Ambitious, wide-ranging, unpredictable, fast-paced, and highly informative'
Christopher Bram, author of Gods and Monsters
'The contribution that LGBT musicians and songwriters have made to popular music and culture should never be underestimated. Whilst some are household names, many are unsung heroes and remain in obscure oblivion... it is fantastic to have our history chronicled in this way'
Paul Southwell, former Handbag lead singer, songwriter and bassist
'This is the book I always wanted to write myself... Bullock has tapped a rich seam of hitherto unwritten history... rich in detail, thoroughly researched, highly readable and wonderfully gossipy'
St. Sukie de la Croix, author of Chicago Whispers: A History of LGBT Chicago Before Stonewall
