been in my life and they remain so. We all have life experiences that
we share. Several good fans have passed away in the last few years.
My reaction and how upset I was surprised me. In doing so, I realised
that there has been a change in the relationship between me and
my fans in recent times. In the early years, I had to keep a distance
from them to keep myself “safe” and to keep the professional and
However, as I said, I think that within my music the experiences are
universal. People get so much out of the music—it’s very important
to them. There is probably no need to differentiate between the pro-
fessional and personal at this point in my life or to be distant. Some
people have followed me for over 30 years—how about that?
AJ: Why do you think so few older women musicians are as revered
as their male peers?
Horse: Until we get to the point where someone is referred to simply
as a musician—good or bad—then there will always be the labelling.
Women do not make women’s music any more than men make men’s
music. Before we are judged on our music, we have to get over vari-
ous hurdles first. This is a universal journey that all women are on.
Looking back at our suffrage I am incredulous that there is still stigma
and discrimination. Also, if we think in the West that it’s difficult, try
living in an African or Eastern country.
AJ: Activism is very important to you—speaking up for people who
don’t have a voice, etc. Can you talk about what role your music plays
in creating community and awareness of important issues?
Horse: If you can be of use to one person by being either accessible,
being visible or saying something which gives hope. In my expe-
rience, you can have so much influence and bring so much by just
being. I wouldn’t say I’m an activist; I don’t look for controversy. I’m
not a political person, but I am a person with compassion. I care pas-
sionately about equal rights. I care about human rights. Above all, I
strive to be the best I can—to be better than I was yesterday and bet-
AJ: As the first out woman in music to sign to a major record label (in
the UK and Europe) what’s your proudest moment as a gay icon?

Horse: As a person who has been through so many things (although
I did not personally make these things happen) I feel that my visibil-
ity with many, many others, helped lead the change. The two things
that stand out for me are—the day I got married and being in Parlia-
ment for the final debate and passing of the Equal Marriage Bill.
AJ: What would you like your legacy to be?
Horse: I would love for it to be, “Horse, she just changed the world
through her music a little bit.” That maybe, because I was here, I
was open, I am me, life was okay for some others too. In the end, it’s
all about the music.
