With the release of their monumental The Wrack Line, Your Heart Breaks (a.k.a. Clyde Petersen) demonstrates their careful observation of a life well-lived. The song is a collection of collaborations, chronicling Petersen’s misadventures in the freak fold world. Petersen is also an accomplished filmmaker, and in our interview they share how these interests — combined with their activism — work to create a one-of-a-kind experience at their shows: one where everyone can feel welcomed.

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.
