Every June, Pride Month is celebrated! It is a month to support and celebrate those who identify as a part of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning and plus communities. The month is dedicated to those who were a part of the Stonewall Riots in June 1969. The riots were led by members of the LGBTQ+ community against the pervasive police brutality they were facing in New York City and throughout the country. It is considered the spark of the movement for gay rights.
Here at Bandology, we are excited to spotlight some wonderful Canadian musicians and artists who identify as a part of the LGBTQ+ community. We will be featuring one artist a week. Please look through and support these artists, as well as do your own research to support members of this community in June and every month of the year.
