Join Jon Ginoli the lead singer and founding member of the first openly gay punk band, Pansy Division as he reads and signs his new memoir Deflowered: My Life in Pansy Division.
deflowered
Jon Ginoli sets off on a journey of self-discovery and musical passion to become the founding member of Pansy Division, the first out and proud queer core punk rock band to hit the semi-big time. Set against the changing decades of music, we follow the band from their inception in San Francisco, to their search for a music label and a permanent drummer to their current status as indie rock icons. We see the highs-touring with Green Day-and the lows-homophobic fans-of striving for acceptance and success in the world of rock. Replete with the requisite tales of sex, drugs, groupies, band fights and label battles, this rollicking memoir is also an impassioned account of staying true to the artistic vision of queer rock'n'roll.
Jon Ginoli is a guitarist, singer, songwriter and founding member of Pansy Division, a punk rock band whose cd's include Undressed, Deflowered, Wish I'd Taken Pictures, and more. An Illinois native, he's played both dive bars and arenas, and his favorite color is purple. When not on tour with the band he lives and works in San Francisco.

Tip of the Week: Jon Ginoli

...
Jon Ginoli founded Pansy Division in early-nineties San Francisco out of frustration more than anything else, to confront typical gay stereotypes and show that there are no boundaries, no limitations, in music. The pop-punk band-which consisted of all openly gay members-released its first record in 1993 on Lookout!, and by 1994 had some mainstream success with second album "Deflowered. (The group opened for Green Day on the "Dookie" tour.) Unknowingly, Pansy Division had helped spearhead the Queercore movement, with a little help from some good-spirited, filth-laced lyrics. Ginoli's written a memoir chronicling his experiences in the band-a band that's still making records-called "Deflowered: My Life in Pansy Division," and as far as rock 'n' roll autobiographies go, it's a terrifically fun read.
