It’s lovely and strange how a song can cast light on memories of people you haven’t thought about in years, can press urgently on that soft sad spot we carry for our past.
I have put together a mix that spans genres but never stops screaming “BBQ, Y’ALL!” Which is key, I think.
We hope you and your gal pals enjoy these songs on your Thelma and Louise-esque roadtrip, wherein you play by your own rules, take no prisoners and bring out the best in each other.
Lauren Denitzio uses 12 songs to capture their heart — their rage, their love, their adulthood, their politics — and offer it to the world. In the process, they found the pulse of queerness in 2015 and turned it into a drumbeat.
A homosexy lesbionic experience that takes us right back to t.A.T.u., and this time with no weird schoolgirl outfits.
This video includes a lesbian metal band shredding (on guitars) and a bunch of kittens shredding (your couch).
Joan Jett, quit breaking my heart.
Despite (or maybe because of) her lesbianism and shocking lyrics, she’s smashing into mainstream media and not giving any fucks. You will love her. You are welcome in advance for introducing you to your next favorite album.
This is basically a Drake song written just for you. It ends with a playlist that expresses how much we all miss you and your comments. This online community love thang is worth fighting for so here’s a love letter and 32 songs.
Whatever’s currently happening to you is almost definitely not the worst thing that has ever happened to a person.
Jasika Nicole and Claire Savage delivered a perfect mix on an actual CD and it was perfect.

“Being a modern musician is like having a leaky roof and putting out a zillion pots and pans to catch all the water dripping from various holes.” – Jenny Owen Youngs
Julia Weldon made this enormously gay video just in time for Pride, and she wants to share it with you.
It’s worth remembering that Michfest is neither the oldest nor the only such festival in the US, and that many, if not most, of the other fests out there explicitly welcome trans women.
Pretty much all the things you need to know about or listen to before heading off to Bonnaroo! It’s pre-feelings feelings, if you will.
This is the playlist I used in my writing workshop at camp this year!
If you like Holly Miranda and gender-variant circus performers then you will also like this music video.
When you watch these videos, imagine that they are a subversive act poking fun at masculinity while simultaneously, maybe, being incredibly hot. I promise that it will make the problematic less problematic, the weird a little less weird, and the leather pants as queer as they’re supposed to be.
I’m bringing it way back to Selena’s first album with old school Tejano music and cumbias, a few of her English songs (one that has that Paula Abdul 80s/90s swag) and some of her mariachi songs.
