Noisey Specials - Jobriath A.D. - Glam Rock's Lost God (Official Trailer)

"The American Bowie," "The True Fairy of Rock & Roll," "Hype of the Year." Known as the first openly gay rock star, Jobriath's legacy delves deeper than the labels hung upon him. His reign was brief—two years and two albums. Sabotaged by a publicity machine run amok, shunned by the gay community and dismissed by critics, Jobriath was excommunicated from the music business, and became an early casualty of AIDS.

Now, new generations of fans have discovered him through acts like the Pet Shop Boys, Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, Siouxsie Sioux, and Morrissey, all of whom cite Jobriath as a groundbreaking influence. Through interviews, archival material and animation, experience the heartbreaking, unbelievable story of the one, the only, Jobriath.
