LGBT+ Pride is synonymous with equality, diversity, acceptance and freedom of expression. After missing out on parades and festivities in 2020, the summer of 2021 is truly set to be an explosive celebration and this vinyl compilation pressed onto rose vinyl is the perfect soundtrack.
This vinyl offers a multi-faceted LGBT+ experience, with Side A, entitled QUEER CLUB CLASSICS, transporting the listener straight back to an era filled with timeless tunes and classic hits. The album opens with the instantly recognisable smash hit, “Believe”, from the beloved queer icon, Cher, and what follows on Side A is a disco-themed journey through some of the LGBT+ community’s most beloved tunes. Tracks on Side A, include Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family”, a musical reminder that everyone who is LGBT+ is part of a community that looks out for each other, Candi Staton’s “Young Hearts Run Free”, a song so resonant with the community for its message of liberation and freedom, and more tunes sure to get you up and dancing.
Side B, entitled NEW AGE ANTHEMS brings us into the 21st Century with sex-positive, self-confident, coming of age tunes from pop giants such as Charli XCX and Dua Lipa, as well as the rising star, L Devine. Opening with Lizzo’s anthem for the charismatic, “Juice”, it’s time to feel yourself and be celebrate the skin you’re in. Side B also includes Tegan and Sara’s timeless track “Closer”, a song filled with anticipation and fantasy, L Devine & INDIIA’s “Naked Alone”, a sex-positive banger blending R&B elements with funk and pop, along with more modern pop anthems that resonate with the community.
