Song a Day Meme: Day 25

Yet another group introduced to me by GALA's adviser at Oswego, this one is composed of two men who are often called the "Simon and Garfunkel of the gay community" due to their tight harmonies. As with many/most folk artists, their music runs the gamut from tragic to comic and everything in between. Picking just one of their songs was the hard part.

I finally settled on "What Kind Of Self-Respecting Faggot Am I?" from Romanovsky and Phillips. The song is all about gay stereotypes and how the singer just doesn't seem to reflect them. It also gives me a chance to plug Leah Zicari again, this time for her TTO, "What Kind Of Self Respecting Lezzie Is She?" in which she disowns the whole bull dyke image.
