Jobriath was a '70s glam-rocker who, like David Bowie, Elton John and Freddie Mercury, sang songs about space. But unlike any of them, he was openly gay in the 1970s - long before the people of earth were ready to welcome him with open arms.

This week we talk about his spiky piano music, his space-angel beauty, and the hype machine that set him up for a cruel downfall. His influence continues with artists from Morrissey to Def Leppard's Joe Elliott.
