FunFunFunFest: Bob Mould

Robert Arthur “Bob” Mould (born October 16, 1960) is an American musician, principally known for his work as guitaristvocalist andsongwriter for alternative rock bands Hüsker Dü in the 1980s and Sugar in the 1990s.

Though Mould's sexual orientation was previously something of an open secret, he was outed in the early 1990s; he is now openly gay and in the movie "Bear Nation", self-identifies as a "Bear".

In April 2004, Mould was a co-organizer of the WEDRock benefit concert for Freedom to Marry. "WedRock" was a play on the word "wedlock". The event raised an estimated US$30,000. Mould also contributed the song "See a Little Light" to the 2006 album Wed-Rock: A Benefit for Freedom to Marry, an album to support in the legalization of same-sex marriage.
