I never really thought about Jim Nabors’ sexuality. In general, I don’t wonder about others’ sexuality. It just doesn’t occur. Still, when I read this piece I was happy. Nabors has had health problems these past few years, and so this happiness means all the more. All good wishes, folks.
Nabors missed his annual duty at the Indianapolis 500 last year; he sings “Back Home Again in Indiana” (bear in mind his possesses one hell of a baritone) but couldn’t make it. I find myself wondering whether he’ll return this year, and I have to wonder over the reception he’ll receive. Hopefully there won’t be phobic assholes, but come on: demographically speaking, I wouldn’t be surprised if in that huge crowd there’d be some who’d remember he goes home to another man. Drunken Rightists are fully capable, provided of course they remember (let’s hope they’re all too drunk and too caught up in the moment for that). I’m just hoping Nabors will be able and willing to return, and be welcomed back as he damn well should be. And here’s hoping everybody bears in mind his sexuality is no issue in terms of that quite-special moment when he sings. And it’s nobody’s business, either.
