#MusicMonday – Week 24

Frankly speaking, I’m NOT a fan of this song. His voice, the style of the song itself, etc., however…this song was also recorded and released in 1970, just one year after the Stonewall Riots, and was the subject of controversy due to its subject matter. Even now, it’s a tricky matter with arguers going back and forth whether it’s transphobic or a love story. I’m not sure where I see the transphobic side, but as a cisgender person, it’s not up to me to decide which one this is.
