ARCHIVE: Sting on Kissing Guys

Sting's coming out with a new album? Let's look back fondly at his 1996 interview with The Advocate.



The Advocate: Have you heard the joke "Is he gay or just British?"
Sting: I don't think of that as a joke. Did we invent camp, or did we not? I think the British gay movement was probably a pioneer. Noël Coward thought of himself as one of the stately homes of England — even though it was against the law until quite recently. Homosexuals have a place in society. I think the British have a great affection for them.
