The always well-manicured, coiffed and accessorized Zeki Muren. This found at a cool site called Ponytone:
ZEKI MUREN – Hatira (1973) Celebrated as the “Sun” of Turkish music and affectionately called “Pasha”, Muren dressed effeminately and wore ornate rings and heavy make up. It was commonly believed that he was gay, and although he never confirmed nor denied this, he had a pioneering role in making Turkish society more accepting of homosexuality. He paved the way for many later, more openly gay or transsexual artists.
