Stereogum reports the following conversation from a magazine interview in the states.
Best part of this interview with Grizzly Bear in Prefix Magazine:
PM: I didn’t realize Sufjan Stevens was Christian.
Grizzly Bear: Yeah, he’s a hyper-Christian. I really like his music a lot. He kept singing about “he” and “him,” and I thought he was gay at first. Then I found out he was talking about God.
The problem I have is with the assumption that if you were in the media, you would be gay before you were Christian. Kinda weird outlook on life but then I guess the prejudices shown in the interview then by definition cause me to re adjust and reassess my prejudices in this matter.
On a flippant level if you had to choose what people thought about you in today’s society would you choose to be thought of as gay, or Christian. I wonder what would be more hassle, and where the lines would change,
What do you think?
