I'm talking about showtunes performed by gay characters or from gay-themed shows. What are your favorites? In honor of us getting the Gay Games here in Chicago and in response to our current administration, I've put several hours of gay showtunes gay characters or performers, gay shows, or simply from Dreamgirls!
The pop charts might not always show equality of sexuality, musicals however, will always express great interest in LGBT themes. Plus they are timeless. Avenue Q, the hilarious puppet musical, tackles issues of race, noisy sex, closeted gay puppets and poverty.

Each song includes individual rehearsal tracks for each role and vocal part, as well as piano accompaniment tracks that you can use to practice on your own or use in rehearsal in a pinch. Hopefully you find them useful for your production! The Avenue Q Theme.
Avenue Q stands as one of the most popular brands in musical theater history. Musical Theater International is now selling the rights to the play encouraging local community productions, and several companies even supply sets and props for that purpose. There is even a bowdlerized high school version for purchase.
Up first is the Sesame Street inspired musical Avenue Q which is closing in on its fourth year as a Broadway smash. I confess to being less than enthused about seeing Avenue Q as it seemed a little bit like yesterday's news while I wanted to play with something brand new and shiny. Still, I loved the soundtrack and wanted to see it.
The show is loosely based on and inspired by Sesame Streetthough it handles adult themes such as sex, drinking, and pornography. Much of the humor is crude and the language is quite foul, and there is one on-stage depiction of puppet sex, so despite appearing to be a children's show, it is very definitely for mature audiences. At least one song from the show, " The Internet Is for Porn ", has become incredibly popular on the web after being used for a number of user-produced videos.
