LGBTQ musicians are making mainstream moves. Halsey’s “Bad At Love,” which features bisexual lyricism, found its way to the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. Troye Sivan gyrated his way through a Saturday Night Live performance. Kehlani has collaborated with everyone from Cardi B to Charlie Puth and her queer soul sister Hayley Kiyoko. And Big Freedia has been sampled on tracks by megastars Drake and Beyoncé.
While our list of the 50 best LGBTQ anthems spans decades, we curated this sister list that more properly reflects the community in 2018. Just in time for Pride Month, here are 25 songs — all released in the past three years — that deserve your attention.
