Jon Ginoli

For over 20 years Jon Ginoli has been the lead singer and guitarist for the brash, unapologetically out gay rock band Pansy Division. Formed in the early 90s, at a time when no gay rock stars had come out of the closet, they got their big break in 1994 opening for Green Day on their breakthrough tour, making the leap from small clubs to arenas. Pansy Division continues to perform, though less frequently nowadays, and Jon performs occasional solo gigs, playing Pansy Division songs as well as others he has written. He has published a memoir of his adventures with Pansy Division, titled Deflowered. After all these years, he somehow still manages to live in San Francisco. www.pansydivision.com
