You think we will ever get a mainstream gay boy band (no One Direction jokes) ?

    Do you think in this era of blossoming acceptance we will ever get a gay boy band or mainstream gay group? Hell it could even be lesbians. But do you ever think it'll happen?

    A buddy of mine were talking about why there hasn't been one. The first mainstream one will probably get a lot of record sales by both fans and people who dislike the lifestyle but just want to see what they have to say. We were talking about putting together a group. I joked we would be the Spice Boys, lol.

    Shameless promotion time:

    Skip to around minute three because it was just me trying to get him to say yes to joining alliances with me. He said yes

    Would you ever support an openly gay music group? Do you think there's a chance of one ever coming out? What do you think the public response to them would be?

    2 of the 5 say they're straight; but all of the music was gay.

    Alright well music that doesn't enter the fruity novelty song category for the jump. Serious Grammy contenders I'm talking here.

    I think if there were a band that had all gay people in it, then it would by definition not be a "mainstream band". Right?

    We already had " Frankie goes to Hollywood". And since I can't figure out how to embed the YouTube clip here with my effing ipad you have to go there yourself.

    That's like saying if they were all black they wouldn't be mainstream.

    Lol they're all straight. They appeal to young girls. I want one that appeals to young adult males.

    No its not going to happen, one of them is obviously gay if you haven't figured it out so try harder! Boy bands already appeal to young boys as is, even if they are straight.

    Hmmm. I'm not sure the market would be big enough for a record label to just gear it towards young gay males?

    No, there isn't enough of us to support them. If they are a young boy band like One Direction, they'll be too young for most of us to fall all over. And too be honest, young girls can yell at their parents for tickets, posters, and other things, saying that *for example* One direction is so "hot", but most little gay boys, aren't out yet and can't openly argue to support those "gay groups"

    Well yeah you have a point but where I'm going with this is that basically take all that sexually charged stuff they do towards a female fan base and make said base male but pigeonhole yourselves into those being 'those gay guys who sing'.

    And by young I meant like over eighteen. I didn't mean teen. That kind of success is extremely short lived. When you target young adults you get at least another few years added onto to your longevity.

    I look at groups like Mindless Behavior and I think to myself that they'll only be relevant maybe another year and a half.

    Aw I miss that show!

    If Smash weren't two seconds away from being cancelled I'd say Jane should go on that show.

    And if those assholes don't nominated AND award her this year I swear on everything......

    I'm so sick of that bitch from Modern Family getting it. Claire is such annoying character. She is completely unlikable.

    This. Aiming at 5% of the population vs 51% of the population is a no brainer for a manufactured pop group.

    Hmm... Scissor Sisters anyone?
    Or does it has to be 100% males only?

    With any luck, we're a little smarter than 13 year-old girls, so there never will be one.
