The personal story of the 1970s disco singer relates his humble origins, his early days as a chorus singer and member of the notorious Cockettes theatrical group, and the flamboyant energy and changing lifestyles that shaped his career. By the author of Freaks Talk Back.
Annotation:
Though he was best known as a disco artist, the singer Sylvester, who died of AIDS in 1988, got his first introduction to performing in the late 1960s as one of a group of young gay black Los Angeles teenagers called the Disquotays, later graduating up to become a member of the outrageous San Francisco performance art troupe the Cockettes. Joshua Gamson's biography of one of the disco era's most memorable figures conjures the heady atmosphere of pre-AIDS 1970s San Francisco, with its bathhouses, non-stop partying, and hedonistic sexual adventures, and Sylvester's starring role in the constantly evolving drama.
