In the nearly 5(!) years that The Monday Lineup has existed, I have never put together a Lineup for Pride. Sure, I constantly celebrate the genius of many LGBTQIA+ artists through my playlists and radio show, but when I realized I’ve never created an actual Pride Lineup, I obviously had to rectify that immediately.
As Pride month comes to a close, I hope you not only use Lineup #249 to get through the start of the week, but take a moment to honor the incredible musical contributions of this community across decades and genres. It’s pretty remarkable.
Also, shoutout to Clare of Queer Ear on BFF.fm, whose extensive database of LGBTQIA+ artists was instrumental in the creation of this playlist (and the radio show I’m debuting tonight on BFF.fm - tune in!).
