Queerly Not Straight: 15 LGBTQ+ Music Artists of 2019

In an effort to build a space for queer people like myself, every Tuesday I’ll be posting opinion pieces, listicals, reviews, and more focused on the LGBT community (and occasionally about the Latinx/WOC community since I am Latinx.) Welcome to Queerly Not Straight! Enjoy and leave a comment below if you have a suggestion for what I should cover next.


2019 was full of bangers, ballads, and everything in between when it came to LGBTQ+ music and artists.
