Interview

Country Risque embody the eclecticism of their hometown of San Francisco. The band’s vintage approach to country music is winsome and boot-kickin’ — as is their recently-released album Doe-Eyed Loverboys & Saints. (The album came out in March and we’ll review it soon!) For our very first Pride of Place column, Country Risque’s Miles Gordon walks us through all the things to love about San Francisco.

Gay Ole Opry

Why queer country music? Because sometimes you love a culture that doesn’t love you back. And when everyone came to the first Gay Ole Opry in April of 2011 in all their country finery, we knew we weren’t alone. We do it because we love the music and want to build a community to support queer country musicians.
