#54 – Queer Stories From The Home Of Metal
On Sunday November 14, Hell Bent For Metal took part in Queer Stories From The Home Of Metal, an event celebrating the LGBT+ community of Birmingham, in the West Midlands of England: the place heavy metal was born. Recorded in front of a live audience at Subside Bar, the hosts are joined by two of Birmingham's queer residents, Eva Echo and Andy O'Malley, about their experiences of being out in metal, and out in the place metal started.
As they were in the West Midlands, they also took the opportunity to explain why 'Breaking The Law' by Judas Priest speaks to their queer side, in this week's Camp Classic. Given Rob Halford being the most famous gay man in metal, and also being from the West Midlands, it was the perfect choice.
Back home from Brum, there's just time for a quick trip to the Hate Crew Gaybar, where this week's jukebox additions are Into The Hollow Earth by All Hail The Yeti, and Pelgrimsoord by Ossaert.
