A visitor to glbtq e-mailed me and asked why we don't have an entry on Jobriath, the musician. Does Jobriath have a lot of fans? Is he important as a gay musician, or an also-ran?

As the guy who sent the e-mail I thought I should weigh in. Jobriath has influenced many of today's popular gay pop stars. In the late 70's and 80's his cautionary tale was the main reason why many of the bigger stars like George Micheal were afraid to be out.

Ther are numberous web sites with great information on Jobraith and efforts to get his two albums released on CD. Do a Google search and have fun.
