Tapes by Indientry: June – Live Proud

Happy Pride! In case you haven’t heard, June is Pride month, and though there are still barriers facing members of the LGBTQ+ community in America and around the world, there is also plenty to celebrate, and that’s what this month (and this playlist) is for.

There is still plenty of work to be done by LGBTQ+ folks and our allies; in America, for example, there are still no federal bans on conversion therapy (explore these maps to see other policies) and eleven trans women have been killed so far this year. Globally, there are still countries that consider same-sex relationships criminal.

But even in the midst of this, Pride is a month for celebrating. Here, we’ve put together a playlist of eleven songs by some of our favorite LGBTQ+ artists, some of whom we’ve previously covered and some of whom we haven’t.

Obviously, this playlist is by no means an exhaustive list; there are thousands of queer artists and musicians, and some are even working as activists as well as creating music. I encourage you to explore and find other great LGBTQ+ musicians.

So get out there, have a great last weekend of Pride month and don’t forget that the best way to support LGBTQ+ musicians is to purchase their music or merchandise. That said, check out the playlist below:
