Celebrate Pride Month with Song Plug
It's June 1st, which means it's officially Pride Month! Here on Song Plug we will be showing our support for musicians in the LGBTQ+ community by featuring interviews with current LGBTQ+ artists, LGBTQ+ music reviews, and a playlist curated by our writers filled with our favorite songs by LGBTQ+ musicians. We're excited to be celebrating all month long!
We asked artists who their musical inspirations are, what advice they have for aspiring artists in their community and took a deeper look at some of their songs. We discussed Pride events and found out what LGBTQ+ artists they're currently listening to. Every artist has an experience that's unique to them, and we reached out in order to learn more about each one.
Representation is important in all forms of media, and music is no exception. If done well, representation can make members of a community feel seen and understood. It can also help to educate people outside of the community. This month it's our goal to showcase LGBTQ+ artists in hopes of connecting our readers with music they can relate to and learn from.
If you're looking for a way to support LGBTQ+ musicians this Pride Month, we encourage you to follow this series. Read the interviews, read the reviews, and then give their music a listen. If you like what you hear, add their songs to your Spotify playlists, or favorite them on YouTube. And if you're already a fan of their music, share it with friends and spread the word. You can never go wrong if sharing good music with the people that you care about.
We hope you're looking forward to our Pride Month series, I know we are. We're looking forward to sharing it with you! Don't forget to share this article and be on the lookout for next week’s installation.
