Jake Shears (born Jason F. Sellards, October 3, 1978) is the lead male vocalist for the American music group Scissor Sisters.

In concert, Shears is known for provocative dancing, flamboyant outfits, and near-nudity. (During his early years while he was struggling to make it in New York, he would often earn extra money as a Go-go dancer and male erotic dancer at male strip clubs.) His musical influences include ABBA, Blondie, David Bowie, Duran Duran, Roxy Music, The New York Dolls, Queen, Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Pet Shop Boys, The Beatles, and Dolly Parton. The Scissor Sisters video for Filthy/Gorgeous was directed by John Cameron Mitchell after Shears met him at a gathering of the Radical Faeries

Born in Mesa, Arizona as the son of an entrepreneur father and a Baptist mother, Shears grew up on San Juan Island, north of Seattle. While living on San Juan Island, he attended school at Friday Harbor High School, where he was bullied. At the age of 18, he moved into a dorm at The Northwest School in Seattle to finish high school.
Shears later attended Occidental College in Los Angeles. At 19, he traveled to Lexington, Kentucky to visit a classmate, who introduced him to Scott Hoffman (Babydaddy). Shears and Hoffman hit it off immediately and, a year later, both moved to New York.

Shears came out to his parents at the urging of Dan Savage, who later called his advice "the worst I've ever given". In 2010, he participated in Savage's It Gets Better Project.

Shears' early performances included a play of Narnia in 1993, directed by Fred Yockers.

In New York, Shears attended The New School's Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts, where he studied fiction writing and was classmates with Travis Jeppesen. Shears also wrote pieces for the gay magazine HX. For a while, Shears, who in 2006 had a boyfriend, was a fixture on the New York gay and electroclash scene.
In 2000, Shears also worked as a music reviewer for Paper magazine.

Scissor Sisters
Shears and Hoffman formed the Scissor Sisters in 2001 as a kind of performance art lark, playing outrageous shows in clubs like Luxx, the heart of the electroclash scene in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where Shears lived. After a couple years struggling in New York (working with record label A Touch of Class, who produced "Comfortably Numb" and "Filthy/Gorgeous"), the Sisters finally found success in the UK and Ireland--ending 2004 with the biggest-selling album of the year in the UK.

Shears attended Sir Elton John's "stag" party before John's civil partnership ceremony with David Furnish in 2005. John and Shears discussed each other in The Observer in 2006.
