This feels vaguely appropriate right now. This is Pansy Division's "Gonna be a Slut" (naw, the lyrics ain't safe for work):

And lead guitarist Jon Ginoli, in his own words, on coming out:

It took me a long time to figure out that I was really gay, and that my attraction to guys wasn't going away. I remember reading about Harvey Milk getting shot (in 1978) and thinking, I don't think I can ever be gay. But two years later I was out, and I never looked back. I think I might have dealt with it earlier if I'd only realized that my two favorite high school teachers (one male, one female) were gay. But my gaydar took time to develop.

I love these guys...I need to find a copy of "Rock N' Roll Queer Bar". I love that song!
