Queer Musicians To Get Your Through

By Sam Leighton-Dore

I believe it was Hans Christian Anderson who famously mused that “where words fail, music speaks” — and Lord knows the last few weeks of Australian politics have left me and countless others in our beloved community lost for words. This is precisely why I thought I’d take the opportunity to sift through the queerest playlists on the inter-web, serving up an eclectic list of LGBTIQ+ bands and musicians who inspire listeners to keep on keeping on.

1. Mykki Blanco

Describing herself as both transgender and multi-gender, Mykki Blanco has been labelled one of rap’s most promising artists — and for good reason. Not only has she proven to be an important voice through her investigative journalism, she’s collaborated with prolific queer filmmaker Matt Lambert to create this eight-minute masterpiece which tackles race, sexuality, and gender all at once.
