Gentleman Reg – How We Exit

From the album Jet Black by indie artist Gentleman Reg, who’s Canadian. He’s openly gay, and has played a number of Gay Pride festivals.  In the U.S., Gentleman Reg is best known for being featured in the 2006 John Cameron Mitchell movie, Shortbus, in which he made a brief cameo and contributed to the film’s soundtrack.

“I didn’t want to hide the fact that I was gay. I wanted it to be known. But at the same time, I don’t want to be politically preachy or alienating in any way. I still want the music to be inclusive. Kind of like Rufus Wainwright. His range of fans is really diverse. He doesn’t just attract gay males.”
