Here's a totally awesome folk song, Mary Gauthier's "Mercy Now":
And here's Mary, in her own words for AfterEllen.com, on why some queer celebs don't talk about their personal lives in interviews:
I think it's internalized homophobia, though I don't want to put labels on other people's struggles and beat them with that when they're already in pain. I'm not gonna do that. But I know for me there's been all kinds of internalized homophobia that I've had to deal with and the layers of it are astonishing. Even when it comes to being an over-achiever, it's like I gotta be better than to be equal. But that's bulls---, it's homophobia. You think of it as ambition or something, but there's a driving force behind it that doesn't feel like ambition. It feels like competition. There are lots of levels to that, it's a complex thing.
