Get Lucky - Number Seven!
I don’t want to admit how many hours I lost to researching tunes and bands for this article. There’s a lot of stuff out there to sort through, even if you restrict yourself to artists you know and ones that have some element of queerness attached to them. But it was fun going back and listening to all this amazing stuff and realizing a lot of these back catalogues, side-projects, or even new albums I had no idea existed! I felt lucky revisiting parts of my childhood, teenage years, twenty-somethings, adulthood, and post-adulthood where I realize that it will never be possible for me to be what the past generation thought an adult should be.
How a Trans Woman Helped Me Get In Touch with the Feminine
EXPLICIT LYRICS WARNING In the summer of 2000, I was living with my first girlfriend in the small city of Richmond IN. I had just graduated from Earlham College, where we met, a Quaker liberal arts school of 1000 students that was both a place of limitations and, full of possibility. As a school, we prided ourselves on being an open minded and welcoming community, but like everywhere, prejudice finds its way in and establishes a foothold. I had spent my sophomore year writing an editorial column on race relations for the school paper. By my senior year I had been the leader or coleader of almost every student group that represented marginalized communities- BLAC, the Multicultural Alliance, Women of Color and the Womyn's Center. The only group that I belonged to and did not lead at some point was Rainbow Tribe. I had not gotten my footing there and was still discovering what loving women meant to me. I had not fully found my voice but music gave me the words.
Pride Millennial Edition
Millennials were exposed to arguably some of the best LGBTQ positive music of all time but that's just my opinion.

As a Millennial, I want to share my experience with the top 10 Pride playlist for the 25-39 year age range. Happy Pride Month!
Melodies for Future Allies
The LGBTQIA+ community is a fantastic group of people that, together, strive to make the world a more inclusive, loving place for anyone and everyone. Although I come from quite a conservative background, there have been times that my ingrained dogmas were uncovered, and quickly I became aware of the differences between a narrow-minded ideology and acceptance. It was a ground-breaking moment in my life, and I am proud to be an ally of the community. My partner identifies as queer and, through her liberal outlook on life and love, I have been allowed to express myself in ways that make me happy. I dress how I like, talk how I want, walk the path I choose and love the people that love me back. On multiple occasions, I have been so happy that I have been questioned about being gay, or at least somewhere on the spectrum. I always reply with the same answer:

Dancing Attitude And Love
To celebrate through Anthem, Pride for each individual has unique likes, feelings, and experiences is quite the challenge. I personally am not very open about my heart, my feelings are something private, and most of even my closest friends (that are like family) and my beloved family really don't know all that I am. My Sister did, and we used to sing many of these songs on many occasions, just having a good time. She was my best friend, strongest supporter, greatest ally, and so much more than my Super Sis. For me, I am a supportive ally, who happens to be a member. I am not ready to be fully open about my feelings, but I can't resist sharing my unique playlist.
