Collects the best music journalism by the pioneering gay critic Kris Kirk. From the wild queeny abandon of little Richard in the Fifties through the playful synthetic pleasures of Pet Shop Boys three decades later, Kris Kirk wrote about and interviewed all of the leading players who helped to queer pop's pitch.A Boy Called Mary also looks back to the saccharine camp pop in the days before rock 'n' roll, pays tribute to the sixties pioneers (Brian Epstein, The Kinks) and reveals the appeal of gay icons like Dusty Springfield and Grace Jones. This books brings together for the first time candid interviews with the likes of Marc Almond and Boy George with such seminal essays as 'What a Difference a Gay Makes, ' and 'The Vinyl Closet.'
