Black History Month 2014: Little Richard

Image Source

Little Richard is a rock’n’roll pioneer.  That’s undeniable.   But what has always been in question was his sexuality.  He’s stated in the past that his effeminate manner has helped to get him into venues that he otherwise would have been barred from foe being black.

That doesn’t mean that he’s not into men.  He’s dabbled in the lady and man pools.  And he’s a self-professed ‘omnisexual.’

Random Fact:

Little Richard stopped doing secular music in the early 50’s because he concluded it was the Devil’s work.  He was content with his life as a traveling preacher focusing on his gospel tunes until the Beatles revived several of his songs in 1964. This was enough for him to make a triumphant return to the rock stage.
