The Who Woulda Thunk Files: Indie Bands with Gay Frontmen

So I adore Grizzly Bear and their hypnotic, near-ambient sound. Massachusetts local Ed Droste, of course, is openly gay and named the band after a furry ex-boyfriend.

But Droste is only one of many indie bands fronted by gay men. There’s Jonsi of Sigur Ros, Kele Okerereke of Bloc Party, among others. A burgeoning trend? Queerty compiled a nice little homage to the musicians and their stolid (defiant?) queer moments.
