do we need to be spoon-fed personal pride? a queer music label debuts.

I just do not know how i am supposed to react to this.

part of me wants to say 'yay' and wave a stupid little flag. the other part of me wants to smack these panderers upside the head and yell things like 'we arent different" and 'fuck you for making us think we're special."

it may be a success, but i dont think it can be! with the country already politically divided, we need to worry about finding common threads, dont we? we do in my head, at least. we do not need a tv channel, radio station, magazines(with ford advertisements in them) and our own week of celebration at the faggiest place on earth to be recognized.

or is this just all fluff to keep us from actually persuing equal rights?

i know the fag struggle doesnt relate wholly to that of colored persons during segregation, but it seems to a little.

id also think better of this venture if i thought that everything they play wouldnt have that stupid dance track thrown over a normal song like, say...

hey, jupiter.

that experience ruined the gay disco club for me. they actually played hey, jupiter with a disco track over it. such a song deserves better than to have a couple hundred fags twitching to it on a poorly lit meatmarket of a dance floor.

why do i feel like an elderly republican trapped in a beautifully young liberals body?

Sony Music on Tuesday said it was launching the first major music label dedicated to nurturing lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gendered artists.

The label, Music with a Twist, is a joint venture with Wilderness Media & Entertainment, the company led by Matt Farber, who founded Viacom Inc.'s MTV Networks' new gay and lesbian channel LOGO, which is available in an estimated 20 million homes.

The label also comes as Wilderness Media plans this weekend to launch a syndicated national radio show called Twist targeting the gay and "gay-adjacent" communities, debuting on FM stations and the Web.

The weekly two-hour radio show will feature music, celebrity interviews, entertainment reports and relationship and lifestyle advice and news in a "morning show" format.

"It's an idea whose time has come," Farber told Reuters, referring to the expansion of gay-themed media properties.

"Only now are media and entertainment brands being created for the gay and lesbian audience following the success of brands for other minorities," he said.

Farber noted that the success of brands dedicated to the African American and Hispanic audiences have also helped talent in these communities cross over well beyond their core audiences.

Likewise, Music With a Twist's roster will feature gay artists who have mass appeal and hit potential across all musical genres. The label will collaborate with Sony Music's other U.S. labels and divisions, including Columbia Records Group, Epic Records, Sony Nashville and Sony Urban Music.

Sony Music is part of Sony BMG, a joint venture of Sony Corp and Bertelsmann AG.

The label also plans to release various compilations geared toward gay and bisexual audiences, as well as music fans everywhere, featuring hit songs by established artists that have been embraced by gay, bisexual and trans-gendered audiences as well as tracks from emerging gay artists.

The first of these compilations will be released in June 2006 during National Gay Pride Month.

Seems pointless to me. Probably just for publicity.

RE: do we need to be spoon-fed personal pride? a queer music label debuts.

yay fat bottom girls!

there was this girl in my photography class, the fat overachieving type. her name was sally.

my little blue haired friend an i would have to sing just a little bit to make the day better.

we changed fanny to sally and let the silliness begin[:)]

that sally, though. she was ruthless to everyone elses prints. she would rip them, crease them, let hers get stuck to them(and not use water to unstick them) she just wasnt a nice girl.

Maybe some folks need corporate acknowledgement, same as straight people. I say "Flush the Fashion!"

I understand your point. But there are plenty of groups out there who need to feel special. Lots of groups say "I want to be treated equal, oh but I also want a special fraternity/sorority, and a special record label, and my own night clubs, and ..."

RE: do we need to be spoon-fed personal pride? a queer music label debuts.

i know, 430, thats why i was conflicted.

on one hand i want to marry the person i adore and know theyve got rights. same for those that could benefit from shared insurances and such.

but why does it have to be parades and marches and special music and special everything? i'd like it better if everyone could just be treated like people and not make a big fuss about it.
