    One of the all time great romantic songs...

    And yeah, that's what's her name form The Jamie Foxx Show
    Queer witty banter writer Bruce Villanch claims to have been friends with Luther and that Luther confided in him that he was gays. And really, from songs like "Secret Love" to him referring to Fonzie Thornton as
    my "best friend" - don't write a book, ha ha
    in the "thank you" notes of one of his albums, to his speech patterns and love of sequins...

    It's currently on his Wikipedia page, but even the well sourced information about his sexuality often gets taken out by people who cannot handle the truth.

    My two favorite vocal performances of all time are both by gay men. Call me biased.

    Number one:
    Luther Ronzoni Vandross, Jr. in one of his skinny phases, honoring diva Dionne Warwick with the Bacharach/David classic "A House is not a Home"

    As SOON as I see Ruffin It takes me about 2 listens just to get past 1 of my favorite Temps songs ever.

    I'd be remiss to ever leave out PE when talking about classics. I was raised on these joints.

    No love for the great rev Al Green? For shame. Love and Happiness, I'm so Tired of Being Alone, Let's Stay Together, and so many many more great songs.
