So yesterday was my first music hum class (it wasn’t easy to get, let me tell you that!) and one of the first things we did was talk about our music selections.
This is the moment of truth: do you cough up to the fact that you listen to Britney Spears all night, or do you pull something witty and faux clever, like Vampire Weekend? (Let’s face it, either way people are going to look at you badly in class.)
While people were talking about what they listen to in the shower, I reflected on how the queer movement has introduced me to a number of artists I wouldn’t have considered in the past, such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, and yes, Britney Spears herself.
So, do you find your music selections have been affected by the LGBTQ movement? Do you find yourself more tolerant of Mariah Carey’s flamboyant curlicues in song? Tell me in the comments, and don’t forget to dance to all the latest and best queer beats at our upcoming First Friday!
