Songs For The LGBTQ+ Community


There is a lot of great music out there, particularly for the LGBTQ+ Community. Often, artists won't always address what their songs are about or state whether or not they are related to the LGBTQ+ Community, but that's something I love about music, you can interpret it in your own way and relate lyrics to your own situations.
Therefore, I wanted to share some songs with you which I think relate perfectly to LGBTQ+ Community members, especially if you analyse the lyrics in the right way. Although the traditional ones are great, this post contains some more modern LGBTQ+ songs and some which people don't really talk about or recognise as being LGBTQ+ anthems. There are also some  truly beautiful ones in here so I hope they touch you as much as they do me. Enjoy and happy listening. :)
