Why Do Gay People Love The Supremes?

834It was always there. I think because we were so glamorous that it automatically was a great attraction for the gay community — they were the ones who were there at the door first… To this day, there are different camps for Flo, Diane, Cindy Birdsong and the 1970s (post-Ross) Supremes. And the fans are still there but they are kind of divided.”

      The answer to why,well maybe besides the obvious glamour of them,the sequins,the magic and their talent? Perhaps Rolling Stone magazine put it in one of their top music performers list of all time “They were America’s 1st Black Sweethearts” They beat out all odds (race) to succeed and be taken to heart by so many. Maybe in the same way that later on Ellen is now after all the odds that were against her became Americas 1st Lesbian Sweetheart.

      Because the music is brilliant. Gays are always at the door first when it comes to great art. With the exception of the Gaga fixation — I don’t know what that’s about.
