Gay Deadheads: Pg. 223 of The Grateful Dead Reader

Everyone has a story. Learn it. Share it. Create your own.

It may not be something you think about on the regular but as a Black deadhead, I like to think of the Deadhead community as being open-minded and welcoming to all types of people. It would also be foolish to keep silent on the gay community and how it relates to the Grateful Dead since the band originated in San Fran-friggin-cisco!
grateful dead reader coverI mentioned this book earlier as a way to learn about Grateful Deadiquette at shows. You can also read the stories of gay deadheads.


“I carried the secret of being a Deadhead into the work world and the gay world, and I felt that I carried the secret of being gay into the Grateful Dead world.”
