30 Essential LGBT Albums

For “The Drowners,” really, although ambiguous sexuality is writ large all over Suede’s debut album, from the obvious references — “Pantomime Horse” and its closing question, “Have you ever tried it that way?” — to the more subtle, like the pierced right ear referenced in “Animal Lover.” It was the soundtrack to many a ’90s teen’s self-questioning, something not exactly discouraged by Brett Anderson and his “I’m a bisexual man who’s never had a homosexual experience” image.
