Movie: Love Me Like You Should: The Brave and Bold Sylvester

Sylvester was not of my era, but I’ve become a huge fan. I don’t even remember how I discovered them, but it wasn’t long before I was collecting Sylvester’s music on vinyl and and playing it on jukeboxes.  I was thrilled to see this light shown on this amazing artist over at Amazon Music.  Check it out!

"In partnership with filmmaker Lauren Tabak and writer/consulting producer Barry Walters, we dive into the music career of Sylvester, starting from church choir in South Central LA to his early years in San Francisco. It follows his ascent to stardom through his evergreen, international hits 'Dance (Disco Heat)' and 'You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)'. Through his groundbreaking career, Sylvester blew open the doors for queer visibility and gender fluidity in mainstream music, leaving a legacy that continues to influence today's pop music. The documentary features candid interviews with Billy Porter, Martha Wash (The Weather Girls, Two Tons o’ Fun), Sylvester’s sister Bernadette Baldwin, biographer Josh Gamson, producer/songwriter James Wirrick, and more. Listen to Sylvester on our Pride History playlist:"
