This week, we kick off Pride here in Vancouver. Happy Pride Everyone!
Adam Lambert may not have won American Idol that year—can anyone remember who did?—but he has indisputably changed what people can expect from a popstar. Shortly after Idol was over, Adam Lambert came out and he has proved to fans and sceptics in the music industry that an openly gay man can reign on the pop charts. Just recently R&B upstart Frank Ocean came out of the closet, garnering support from Beyonce among others. Is country music waiting for another openly gay star?
Vancouver son Patrick Masse has been openly gay and making country music—yes, you read that right, country music—pre-Adam Lambert’s coming out. He calls himself “A Traditional Yet Refreshing Brand of Country.”
Here’s my chat with this trailblazer!
