    So i'm not someone for anything gay themed really, but i started wondering what love songs are out there that are written about / aimed to same sex relationships.



    I know a few that are terrible, but i'd love to hear some great, well composed music about gay love. I recently found "handsome man" by Matt Ambel - which is actually quite pleasant.

    Wether it be wanting someone, the relationship or heartbreak. Any suggestions?

Some might be quite generic though some you might have to transpose a few pronouns, but rest assured they were written with gay us in mind.

    Finally finding the one that I wanted was yours
    Making my entrance again with my usual flair
    Sure of my lines, nobody's there



    Even the theme, such love, such song reifies the lives...

    "Sondheim has spoken in the past of feeling like an outsider...did not come out as gay until he was about 40, and did not live with a partner, a dramatist named Peter Jones, until he was 61..."
