Rdio Celebrates Gay Pride Month

June is Gay Pride Month in the US, and here at Rdio we really like parties and celebrations. And thus we are celebrating in a variety of ways.

First of all we’re thrilled to present, “I….Amanda Lepore”, a live concert event in New York City on June 25. Not only will the legendary Amanda Lepore make her concert debut, but you will also see The Ones, Kat DeLuna, Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters, and our very own Rdio influencer Cazwell. To win a pair of tickets to this show, see the info below.

Speaking of Rdio Influencers, we’re celebrating Pride with some loud and proud new additions. The one and only Jake Shears (also of the Scissor Sisters) is newly on board, as is PeaceBisquit Records (home of Colton Ford, Cazwell, Ultra Nate, Crystal Waters and more). And if you follow music on other blogs, you’ll see Arjan Writes and Towleroad on Rdio, picking and clicking along with you. And for our Canadian friends, über media honcho Shaun Proulx is now recommending music to his followers as well.

Since we are all about the music, we curated a The New Sound of Gay Pride Playlist that is anything but old fashioned! Check it out and collaborate—you’ll see our Influencers adding to it regularly. Happy Pride everyone!
