Lavender Country is the world’s first gay country band and album. Originally a bootleg, community sponsored project for gay liberationists, Lavender Country died after distributing just 1000 LP albums and a few performances at gay liberation and Pride events.
Reissued in 2014 by an up and coming label, Paradise of Bachelors, Lavender Country took off like wildfire… What was dead for decades sprang to life with cross country performances, music festivals, videos, documentaries and plans for a feature length screenplay and film are underway.
Lavender Country’s original and lead singer/songwriter Patrick Haggerty, now 73, is alive and kicking, accompanied by a range of baby boomer, Gen X, and Millennial musicians from Seattle to Nashville.
