The last few days have seen an outpouring of personal remembrances of musician David Bowie, who died of cancer Sunday. Bowie leaves a legacy of music and artistry and for many in the LGBTQ community, he’s seen as an inspiration for his early and unmitigated embrace of androgyny. Forum talks about David Bowie and his influence both on the music industry and on us as individuals. We would like to hear from you — when did you first discover David Bowie?
