Okay, so I'm getting close to the end of a rly hellish end of term... thing, and one of the last things I have to do is a presentation tomorrow in class, and what do you know, I can't find any youtube videos that I need for it.

So, dear flist (and anyone else who's come along), can you help?


I mean My Chem, them Panics at the Disco, Bowie, Springsteen, Prince, Muddy Waters, WHOEVER. Any and all examples gratefully sought! If you have knowledgeable people on your flist, I would be SO GRATEFUL if you could link them to me, or if you can think of somewhere comm-wise that it would be useful for me to post this self-same request, I WILL KISS YOUR FEET or DO YOUR DISHES or SOMETHING ELSE EQUALLY HUMBLY GRATEFUL.

I remain, yrs hopefully and faithfully,

One Stressed Grad Student.

Well, if it counts as stagegay when Adam Lambert is gay EVERYWHERE ELSE TOO, then he's got the motherload. It should count, since he's usually kissing a straight boy.

Purple Haze and Whole Lotta Love from Amsterdam. In Purple Haze, Adam does the 'excuse me while I kiss this guy' shtick and wanders off to, you know, kiss Tommy a bit. Then later in WLL he kind of dips Tommy backwards onto a riser and makes out with him for a good 17 seconds.

Everyone also shares a blunt. And it's in an old church. La!

If you want to explore further, the same channel has a lot of video. The standard kissing (he has standard kissing!) place is usually the beginning Fever, except for some memorable exceptions.

Also, kissing of audience members, a young lady and a young lad (tonguediving!):

This channel also has a ton of video. Suz was at like half the shows this year.

Idk, was that kind of what you were looking for?

Definitely definitely! I am most interested in the crowd reaction - so videos where you can hear people going YEAH RARRRR (or, if they exist, the opposite! total silence!) - is just as critical as the action on stage.

That would be all the videos. The audience goes totally batshit whenever Adam even goes near Tommy. I think the only time there was silence was at the American Music Awards, hahah.

The audience enthusiasm is definitely encouraging ever greater feats of, uh, performative homoeroticism. Adam's very sensitive to demographics, though, after the whole AMA backlash, so he'll definitely tone it down for more conservative audiences, or for audiences of non-fans (like tonight when he's playing a Jingle Ball full of Bieber fans).

The shenanigans have also given Tommy a far greater name recognition and prominence than you'd usually expect from a backup musician in a pop singer's tour band. These days the press even print his full name a lot of the time, although his profession varies (he's been a dancer, a guitarist, a drummer, a keyboard player in addition to bassist--multitasking kid.)

Huh. The fact they print his name is absolutely fascinating... but then they might not if Adam did the rounds of the band, making out with each in turn...

(just watched some Kpop where the lead singer apparently manages to get everyone in the band over the course of the set?)

We kind of concluded that there must have been some kind of press release at some point, b/c all the gossip sites seemed to have his name spelled right at the same time.

The most hilarious part was when the New York Times reviewed the NYC shows and got some detail about the stagegay wrong--obviously fifteen thousand Glamberts who'd already watched and analysed every angle of video available immediately flooded them with comments correcting their totally wrong wrongness of wrong. And NYT printed a correction.

Oh, I forgot--if you really want to ~explore the Glam Nation shenanigans, the tour media posts on hooplamagnet are all unlocked and have all known videos listed by song or by vidder, plus links to reviews, professional and otherwise. Comm memories.

There were over 100 shows on the tour, though. I know somebody did these vids called 'the evolution of Fever' or something like that, where they just basically showed how the little choreographed stagegay bit at the beginning of the song changed over the course of the tour, from coy to fierce to lewd to passionate to sweet and round again.

Lol, I'm just spamming you rn. Just got back from work and my brain is working in starts and stops. Anyway.

Wrt doing the rounds, he does hump his dancers a bit and vice versa, and one time he licked his (female, lesbian) keyboard player, but there's clearly some kind of agreement that Tommy is the chewtoy. Adam does have a very specific type (which is spelled T-W-I-N-K), and apparently Taylor, the only other suitable young man, is not quite as into Velvet Goldmine as Tommy. There's another gay man on the tour, but when asked about it, he said he and Adam were like brothers and it would be weird. OTOH, Tommy also happily said Adam was like his brother, so go figure.

Blah blah blah. I could go on about the ~dynamics of the troupe all day. I love band dynamics.

:DDD No problem bb! Also, any class that requires you to do a presentation about stagegay must be awesome :D

(In case you start thinking I'm some super-organized person of awesome, most of these are just c&p'd from the epic stagegay post (http://andlightplay.livejournal.com/6899.html) I wrote a little while ago. Most of it's interview-y/ofstage stuff though, that's why I didn't just link you to it : ) )

Why hello there. I was flist-hopping and stumbled across this post. And since I'm in the early stages of putting together a stage gay vid, I am quite excited to have your comments to read! Hurrah!

If you're still working on this project, I've got some photos of Bowie stage gay, but am still looking for live video.
