Ever wonder what it's like to be a gay rock star? Jon Ginoli lived that life, as the lead singer and guitarist for Pansy Division, SF's pioneering queer punx, who rose to infamy after opening for Green Day on the "Dookie" tour. Now Ginoli has written a book about his experiences--the groupies! The spandex! The matching drapes on the tour bus!--entitled "Deflowered: My Life in Pansy Division."

Ginoli has launched a 60-city book tour, which coincides with the release of PD's eighth album, That's So Gay, and will include live performances and screenings of a PD documentary. Ginoli appears tonight at Books, Inc, tomorrow at Artists' Television Access, Saturday at the Book Zoo in Oakland, and Sunday at Book Passage in Corte Madera.
