Jenny Lizak writesCelebrate Pride With These LGBTQ Artists!

by CHIRP DJ Jenny Lizak

Happy Pride Month! Let’s celebrate with these ten songs from LGBTQ musicians…

“Fast Girls” by Sarge: Elizabeth Elmore spins a tale of meeting a girl at a Punk rock show that she can’t stop thinking about.

“Wut” by Le1f: It’s still not easy being openly gay in the world of Hip-Hop, but Le1f doesn’t pull any punches with this hit.

“Rebel Girl” by Bikini Kill: It’s rumored that riot grrl Kathleen Hanna wrote this song as a tribute to Joan Jett.

“Viz” by Le Tigre: JD Samson sings her heart out about butch-lesbian visibility.

”I Still Remember” by Bloc Party: Kele Okereke laments what could have been in this sweet love song of a romance that never came to fruition.

”Standing In The Way of Control” by Gossip: Beth Ditto wrote this song in response to the Federal Marriage Amendment which would have outlawed same-sex marriage in the U.S.

”For Today I Am A Boy” by Antony and the Johnsons: Anohni describes her experience as a young boy wishing to grow up to be a woman.

”I U She” by Peaches: Peaches likes boys and girls. Enough said.

“The Biggest Lie” by Hüsker Dü: Bob Mould tackles the pain of being closeted in this song.

“Dance Off” by Wheelchair Sports Camp: MC Kalyn Heffernan fronts this funky/jazzy Hip-Hop trio and raps about dancing.
