Queer Music Heritage
The History of the Gay & Lesbian Choral Movement
 JD Doyle  Contact Contributor
Nov. 22, 2010, 3:07 p.m.
This month’s show covers the History & Music of the Gay & Lesbian Choral Movement, and such a daunting subject turned into a 9-hour show on my website, the most extensive one yet on QMH. But the History is the focus of this first segment, and that includes an interview with Dr Tim Seelig, who for 20 years led the Turtle Creek Chorale.

Notes: entire script available on website, at

For every QMH show I have uploaded several pages to my website, The information includes the playlist, script, and photos of the artists and recordings, as I have always considered our music history as a visual as well as an audio experience. In addition the website also includes in depth information on such areas as gay musicals, Songs about Gay Marriage, Songs about AIDS, a Drag Music Discography, an Olivia Records Discography, Women’s Music Magazines, a number of features on Transgendered artist and countless interviews over the years with the pioneers, then and now, of our music culture. It’s a huge site, with over 1200 pages, and growing. Since January 2000 QMH has been dedicated to sharing and preserving music of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community
The show airs monthly on KPFT-FM in Houston as a part of the program Queer Voices, but almost every month has additional hours featured on the website. If you air this edition I would appreciate a quick email, at, so that I can get a feel on where my many hours of hard, labor of love work are reaching.
