12. Mary Lambert – Hang Out With You
Audrey: “Hang Out With You” is a music video about how sometimes all we can possibly do is hang out with our perfect dog and our hot, awkward girlfriend, and how it’s ok to lean into that desire.
13. Carly Rae Jepsen – “Boy Problems”
Mey: This year queer girl aesthetics really crossed over and that was never more clear than in True Gay Icon Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Boy Problems” video. She’s surrounded by millennials and queer and trans people, she has s gay mullet, she looks lovingly into her gal pals eyes and everything is covered in bright colors and glitter. This is the gayest looking video I’ve ever seen. Plus, we all know that the easiest way to cure your boy problems is to just be gay.
14. Tegan & Sara – Stop Desire
Riese: GET IT? THE FRUIT LOOKS LIKE GENITALS!!??!
15. Peaches – Vaginoplasty
Okay Peaches, okay.
16. SEE – Potions
Riese: This is such a time to be alive because See is 20 years old and she’s just now releasing her EP and already her girlfriend is not a secret and also her first music video is basically two girls making out in a red-lit room. A.a. your mid-twenties. Or mine, I guess.
17. Holly Miranda – Come On
Riese: If you’ve ever wanted to see Holly Miranda make out with Holly Miranda, I have some VERY good news for you.
18. Ria Mae – Gold
Riese: Butch hottie with hard femme girlfriend make out and fight and make up, and then there’s a story that twists your heart around and then lands like a bird.
19. Kygo – Stay ft. Maty Noyes
Riese: On the beach, in the forest, at a casino, in a hotel room, these facts remain: lesbian relationships are full of ups and downs and also very danceable beats and also colorful leggings.
20. Dodie – Sick of Losing Soulmates
Riese: You know how you fall in love with a girl and everything’s great and you’re flying high and then it all falls apart and you’ve lost your soulmate and you’ve lost your best friend, too? Dodie knows.
21. Princess Nokia – TOMBOY
Mey: Princess Nokia has been killing it this year and her ode to all the tomboys out there is proof of that. This video is so full of terrific tomboys and masc of center cuties just being themselves and celebrating their gender and personality. Whether you’re a tomboy looking for some representation or a fan of tomboys, like me, this video has something for you.
