Our LGBTQ icons, Tegan and Sara, have made an incredible playlist for Her of their favorite Out & Proud artists. Tune in, enjoy and hear from Sara below.
Introduction from Sara Quinn:
So many of the artists and bands I’m listening to right now happen to be LGBTQ. Of course, I rarely think to myself when I’m listening to any of this fabulous music “it’s so cool that ______ is gay”, but sometimes playlists like this one remind me that we’ve come so far! There is so much visibility for our community and it’s truly inspiring to hear so many mainstream outlets embrace and extend the spectrum of artists being showcased in the media today. When I think back to my own youth I remember that it wasn’t uncommon to see the biggest stars experimenting and flirting with gender fluidity and sexually ambiguous themes (Madonna, Prince, The Eurythmics). So it’s refreshing to see a new generation of artists unapologetically bending the mainstream once again”
You can ask Tegan & Sara your questions and make sure to watch our interview LIVE on Monday.
