ABOUT COUNTRY QUEER

ABOUT THE STORE
Dale Henry Geist, Publisher
Dale says, “Country Queer was a natural outgrowth of my professional life in web design, and my abiding interest in American music. It seemed like the right way for me to get involved in the movement to change the conservative culture of country music to be more accepting of queer voices. I thought that a combination of media and merch could have an impact on visibility and community for LGBTQ country music fans.”
Dale lives in Sonoma County, California. He’s an occasionally-gigging songwriter whose life highlights include introducing Ramblin’ Jack Elliot from the stage of a Woody Guthrie Centennial festival he produced. He/him.
