Cher & The Gays...


My love for Cher is well documented , and no, surprise, she loves my people back...

Her songs like Believe were huge in gay clubs, and Cher has had gay fans, and drag impersonators, since the early days. 

"Gay guys like a certain kind of woman," she explains. "They like a flamboyant woman that's broken. They like a balls-to-the-wall woman, motherly but not; sexual but not. Gay guys are like this: they either love you or they don't even know you're on the planet. Once you have them, you have them." 

When asked if she has a lesbian fan base, espcaily since her being so frank about coming to terms with the sexuality of her transgender son, Chaz, and her first film role as Meryl Streep's lesbian roommate in Silkwood... "Not in the same degree. I think my gay boys, that's a big part of my world."
