LGBT & Queer rebels - official Spotify playlist - help me curate it!

    Hey everyone! I'm curating an official/authorized playlist on Spotify on behalf of The Equality Campaign, an Australian not-for-profit. I'd love your feedback :)

    The playlist aims to shine a light on 'alternative' queer artists around the world and provide a counterpoint to the very commercial LGBT playlists that Spotify currently has.

    Even if you identify as straight/cis, there's a lot of really innovative outsider music on here that I think you'd enjoy.

    Here it is:

    LGBT & Queer rebels, a playlist by The Equality Campaign on Spotify

    I'm going to be updating the playlist every couple of days, so please subscribe if you're keen for new tunes.

    I'd also love suggestions for LGBT artists that I can add in the days and weeks ahead. Anything goes in terms of genre, although there's very little punk/hc/emo at the moment, and I'm also hoping to add more music by POC.

    Thanks for listening :)

    I'd recommend Aye Nako (if you want a song recommendation of theirs as well, "Maybe she's bored with it") and Hit like A Girl (they also have a cool charity organization called No More Dysphoria),

    Hey, thanks!

    I made a decision not to add Tyler because he's not formally out, and some of those early lyrics (while understandable) were problematic. I still feel quite conflicted about him TBH.

    Cakes, Young MA, Mykki – yes, yes, yes.

    Has Brian Molko ever made a definitive statement his orientation?

    Thanks for that – it's an interesting read. I shall add Placebo! A few of their tracks bring back some pretty strong memories for me.

    I’m a trans woman and I played guitar in the band Mineral Girls, so if you’re open to adding music from members of this site I’d be honored for us to be included.

    Lots of good stuff on here and plenty more I'm looking forward to checking out. The first artists that came to mind that I don't see on here are Jenny Owen Youngs, Ladyhawke, Uh Huh Her, The Organ, Le Tigre, and Rebel and a Basketcase.
