For his efforts, the out multi-threat was named as one of The Advocate‘s Forty Under 40.
Most recently, Munich has been begun producing his own music. His singles, “Beat the Beat” and “Referee” (above), are playing the club circuit, with a full EP due out this summer. Catch him on the road performing at Pride events, too.
Munich took a break to chat about his season in the sun with Scott Wallis of Queerty and Swish Edition.
On working on Glee:
“It’s my favorite project to work on—it’s like family every time I go back. It’s long hours…grueling on the body but a pleasure to do.”
On why he think he was named one of The Advocate‘s Forty Under 40:
“As a recording artist, I really wanted to be someone who comes out and changes the industry and change the way gay artists are looked at.”
On being one of Gaga’s egg men:
“I had someone walk up to me in a bar yesterday and it was the first thing he referenced. It’s an iconic piece of pop-culture history.”
