Jobriath’s “Space Clown”
Don’t be afraid of the Space Clown. You’re so entertaining and amusing. Jobriath is widely considered to be the first openly gay rock star. A star shot across the sky and smiled/then vanished in a tear. One of the earliest stars to disappear into the far horizon due to AIDS. When you laugh you bring the house down. From being crowned as “the American David Bowie” to being cast as “laughingstock,” his legacy boasts the last laugh.
