Music Recs: Pride Month Special

We don’t talk about music a lot on our blog, but I guess when we do, it’s with a bang! Which is to say, I’m here today with a list of 60 LGBT artists. And yes, I say artists, not just songs – each and every one of them is an out member of our community. (Well, there are a few bands and some of them only have a lead singer who matches that description, but you know!)

I had to make some decisions regarding the way of presenting all this beauty to you. First of all, I divided those sixty artists into three groups of wlw, mlm & those who are not cis. (I was gonna go with “trans/nonbinary”, but there are also genderfluid, gender nonconforming artists, even a Two-Spirit one, so I figured I need a pretty broad umbrella term here). Obviously, there are some intersections within those groups, but I wanted even numbers… And lastly, I linked them all to my favourite album/single of theirs on Spotify, so I could put covers & make it all look pretty.

So! Take a quiz and figure out who should you listen to!* Or just scroll through them all.

Take the quiz!

*Charlotte made me specify that when I say “dancing alone in your room” in the quiz, what I mean is dancing slowly with your eyes closed, the sound of rain coming through the window & maybe by the end of it you won’t be as tired anymore.

I did try my best to list mostly less known artists. Of course, I can’t know what you know, so I’m sure not all of them are new to y’all. But that’s why you didn’t see for example Hayley Kiyoko or Troye Sivan on here… Though I did end up including some Big Names, because how could I not, really?

Anyway, hopefully you found someone you will love here! Have fun listening!
