Doug Locke is king


When I was a baby gay, back in the '90s, there wasn't much in the way of openly gay artists. There was David McAlmont, then at his creative peak with A Little Communication and his cover of Diamonds Are Forever. There was George Michael, also doing well with Fastlove and his Older album. And there were people like Marc Almond, the relics of another generation. Slim pickings.

Today, the children have a whole array of sizzling gay artists to look up to (even if cynically marketed straight women continue to monopolise): Zebra Katz, Le1f, Cakes Da Killa, Freaky Boiz, Kele Okereke, Mika, Steve Grand, Shamir (he hasn't said he's gay, but...), and let's not forget Five Star Niggaz, to name a few.

And then there's Doug Locke, whose video for the insanely catchy #ThisCouldBeUs blew everyone away. He's back with another soaring tune, King, the video for which is a bittersweet epic. Let's just say it's been playing on a loop. And did I mention Mr Locke is very easy on the eye? Baby gays everywhere will be crushing like crazy...
