What is Gay Pride without music? As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, we must remember that Pride exists (still) out of necessity. For much of our world's history, queer people have felt the need to either hide or assert their right to exist. Music is integral to Pride. Some of the iconic songs of the 70s were written with the LGBT community in mind and some were claimed. Still other songs took on new significance in the wake of the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s. This episode celebrates Pride and the music associated with it.
