Album Review

Pansy Division is still here, still queer, so by now you're probably used to their uniquely effeminate take on punk rock. After a six-year hiatus, their eighth studio album, That's So Gay, finds the staples of queercore in their comfort zone, blatantly exploring topics like closet homosexuality by way of bathroom grafitti ("Obsessed with Me"), highschool quarterback lust ("Pat Me on the Ass"), and the moral dilemmas of dating a male prostitute ("It's Just a Job.")
