I guess i dont care about any of those divisions. It seems to me that such a focus distracts from the nature of music being a universal language that is all inclusive. Having spent my life in the arts...when I read the title i kinda thought it might be easier to name the composers that didnt fit in the OP category. No one with any sense will deny the lgbt participation and contributions to the arts....or any set of peoples for that matter.Maybe not. We've had specific threads on composers and players who are female, Christian, Muslim, Japanese, Irish, and all manner of ethnic, religious, or national identities. This thread's relevant for exactly the same reason: because people with different identities have differing experiences that may not only influence their music in interesting ways, but also inspire different audiences.
