Cayman Islands: Gay cruise song

Categories: Caribbean, Cayman Islands, Arts & Culture, LGBTQ+, Music, Travel

With another gay-themed cruise ship about to berth at Grand Cayman, Cayman Bobby is amused by the lyrics of a new song by local artist Barefoot Man recounting Caymanians’ attitudes to the last gay cruise to land on the island and points to some local double standards. Cayblogger disagrees, however, about the quality of the song, which he calls “ [1]an abortion of music and lyrics set to the Beach Boys’ “Sloop John B” in which barefoot tries to poke fun at the gay cruise ship situation in Cayman – a topic which, by the way, has grown quite old [2].”
