This is my favorite era because the variety we hear during this time period is something like never before. Finally, queer black folks get to individually express their identities and aesthetics!
It was hard enough to be black during this time, let alone black and queer, but these musicians did it and they made awesome music!
Black queer artists have been killing the game forever. Check out what they were doing in the early 20th century.
Every song on this playlist is a little push forward for you, reminding you that you are perfect just as you are. Now go out there and live loud just like a musical theatre enthusiast should!
The music you listen to in your teen years mixes with your hormones and emotions and overwhelms you and permanently molds you. You make mix tapes, you go to shows, you buy band t-shirts and posters, you get ill advised tattoos. It’s a lot of fun.
I’m beyond honored and blessed to premiere the new live version of “I Am Her,” Diamond’s powerful anthem stripped down into an a capella performance.
2016 sucked, so I listened to a lot of music by women. It helped! Here’s seven of them which came out this year and thus were appropriate to use as a year-end recap list.
Princess Nokia, Dodie, Hayley Kiyoko, Tegan & Sara, Nina Sky and so many other artists blessed us this year with some very queer video imagery this year!
“In the twisting lunge, think about the line of pain this stretch brings out of your hip and low spine. Think about the fact that this is a very specific place in your body.

“We will fight against the repressive legislation of the incoming Trump administration.”
Sometimes everything falls apart. Sometimes shit hits the fan. Sometimes the only thing that makes sense is doing something that never really does.
Brittani Nichols Likes You is the thing about Brittani Nichols. It’s sexy and it’s funny and it’s real and it’s raw and it’s further proof that she can do anything she wants to do.
If you’re into Very Famous Millennials and angsty lesbian drama (and you are, or else you wouldn’t be on this website), today is the day you’ve been waiting for.
Would you like to watch Kristen Stewart drive a muscle car irresponsibly while licking a blue lollipop? Today’s your lucky day, bucko.
Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui is a proud bisexual Cuban-American, and also has some very choice words for Donald Trump voters so LISTEN UP.
On her new album HERE, Alicia Keys first in three years, she has a lot of songs, but none as specifically suited to our interests here at Autostraddle than “Where Do We Begin Now,” a confusing song about first time sapphic attraction.
I realized something inside of me had forever changed the first time I was smoking with the windows down and the music loud in my car and thought to myself “Huh, I could imagine myself doing SoulCycle to this song.”
Hey, did you watch the 50th Anniversary of the Country Music Awards last night? I didn’t either! But I did watch Beyoncé and the Dixie Chick’s performance of “Daddy Lessons” and hot damn! It was fucking amazing.
