Amazon Music have released a short film on Youtube about legendary disco singer, Sylvester. 

The documentary, Love Me Like You Should: The Brave and Bold Sylvester, explores Sylvester’s beginnings with a church choir through to his years spent immersed in San Francisco’s queer nightlife scene, and is available to view for free as part of celebrations for LGBTQI+ pride.

The LA-born singer was responsible for vocals on classics such as ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’ and ‘Dance (Disco Heat)’, and releasing records on imprints owned by the likes of Patrick Cowley. Sylvester was also a prominent activist against the spread of HIV/AIDS throughout his career.

The documentary features candid interviews with Billy Porter, Martha Wash (The Weather Girls, Two Tons o’ Fun), Sylvester’s sister Bernadette Baldwin, biographer Josh Gamson, producer/songwriter James Wirrick, and more. Check it out below.
