I played this one in last week’s episode of my robe recitals. It is a difficult arrangement and it takes a long time for it to sink into my fingers. #MusicalMondays #PracticeDiaries #RobeRecitals

Today marks 50 years since the passing of the beloved Judy Garland. Her songs reminded me of all the positive things that the US had to offer after 9/11 and today it seems we need to be reminded of these things just as much. Thank you Judy for your music, for your spirit, for your light that burnt so bright and too fast. I miss you deeply and am thinking of you today - I’m lucky to have had the chance to perform your music. https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/8494848/best-covers-albums-underappreciated

MOTHER at the Cathedral in St. Denis was a very special show for me and my sister Martha. It was not only singing songs of our mother and but also interpreting other songs about mothers and motherhood. Thanks to everyone who shared this experience with me, especially my sister, @marthawainwright -- it wouldn't have been the same without you. To those who weren't able to be with us, I found this pretty good video of my cover of John Lennon's "Mother". I sing it a bit slower than John Lennon but what an amazing song» https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fkxEkqKB_8

I'm proud of both my sexuality and to be quoted in PrideLife's 50 on 50! This article features 50 quotes from LGBT persons and allies reflecting on the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. I'm always happy to use my platform to talk about equal rights and equality for the LGBT family!

I’ll be playing a small show at the Passionskirche in Berlin on June 22nd. I will be spending more than 10 days in Berlin to work on revisions for Hadrian. In German “Passion” means the suffering of Christ - a stark contrast from the English meaning. Ironically, the deep love and passion between Jorn and I was born at the Passionskirche. This is the concert where we met for the first time on May 9th, 2005. It is always touching to return to this concert hall and all the more relevant to return with Jorn - I cannot wait to spend time in Berlin with him again. I’m excited to be sharing this very special show with all of my lovely fans. I only found one, out of focus picture from that show - if there are any other pictures from that night out there, please send them to: [email protected] We will be forever grateful! Love, Rufus

I added a piece to Stonewall Forever, a Living Monument to 50 Years of Pride. Join me and the many before us by adding yours at stonewallforever.org I am blessed that I live in a country that legalized gay marriage but we all know that our rights are constantly under attack. #StonewallForever

On 9/11 I was with Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono learning one of the greatest songs: Across the Universe. I will never forget that day. I'm honored to be joining ALL ARTS and CHOIR CHOIR CHOIR and thousands to sing Hallelujah at National September 11 Memorial & Museum honoring the rescue workers of 9/11.

Always so happy to sing with my dear sister Martha. Our mother Kate loved it the most when we sang together. Super proud of Martha for opening a community/center/music/venue in Montreal called Ursa in Avenue de Parc. Check it out. She is organizing a festival weekend on summer solstice.

It feels bittersweet to say farewell to the #ALLTHESEPOSESTour and the first twenty years of my career. I had an incredible time with the band, crew, all my outfits and everyone else who worked so hard to make this tour happen. Now it's time to dive into the next 20 years. Next time I'm on the road I'll be with a band and all new material! Sending my love to all my fans around the world. Huge shoutout to Thierry-Maxime Loriot for overseeing Creative Direction, Rachel Eckroth for opening at select shows and to Paul Bryan, Gerry Leonard Spooky Ghost, Jamie Edwards, Jebin Bruni and Matt Johnson for being the most spectacular band. My fondest memory from the #ALLTHESEPOSESTour was seeing all my lovely fans! What was your best memory from the tour? Let me know in the comments section! 📷: Ben Houdijk Photography, Morten Rygaard Photography, Christie Goodwin, Ian Laidlaw Photography, Jared Leibowitz Photography, Murray Kerr and Shoot Studio And a special thanks to: mere phantoms, Viktor&Rolf,Swarovski, and ALDO Shoes

Signing Northern Stars CDs for my #alltheseposestour show at the Salle Pelletier at the @placedesarts in Montreal tonight. On the other side of a glamorous pop star life!! There are still a few tickets available if you want to come down. It is the second last show of the entire tour and Montreal is always special. Maybe @martha.wainwright will make a special appearance tonight? These shows are very special to me as this is the material that my whole life started with.

12 years ago, I released my fifth studio album, #ReleaseTheStars. This album was a transformative moment in my career; going gold in the UK and Canada, as well as making it to the #2 slot on the UK Albums Chart. I remember recording this album with Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys, Marius de Vries, Andy Bradfield, Richard Thompson - RT, Teddy Thompson, Joan As Police Woman, Anna Prohaska, my sister Martha Wainwright and my mother Kate McGarrigle like it was yesterday. Thanks to everyone who supported the album and still stands by me today. Love, Rufus
