Sound Barrier: Sylvester

SOUND BARRIER is a new documentary podcast about artists who break barriers in music and culture. Season 1 is about Sylvester— a musician who is perhaps even more relevant today than in the 70s and 80s. Imagine: before Elton John was out of the closet, before androgynous performers of color like Prince were in the mainstream, there was an openly gay Black man who dressed in drag. Sound Barrier delves deep into his music and his life, showing him in all his genre and gender-bending glory. Discover the Black queer ancestor who paved the way for today's most innovative artists.
