Follow the Yellow Brick Road: The Classic Sound of Pride

Classic Sound of Gay Pride

Listen up, young'uns! While you’re celebrating this week’s step forward for marriage equality and getting gussied up for Pride Weekend, don’t forget the LGBTs and allies that paved the yellow brick road behind us. We highlight the musicians and songs that championed same-sex equality with our third Pride focused playlist, The Classic Sound of Gay Pride. At the forefront is Sylvester, known as the Queen of Disco, who was out, proud, and dominating disco when being gay was law-breaking. He’s joined by legends like Queen, Melissa Etheridge, Erasure, Janis Joplin, and George Michael. It’s the biggest reunion of gay icons since Dorothy went over the rainbow so sing along to The Classic Sound of Gay Pride from Rdio.

Don’t miss our other pride playlists, The New Sound of Gay Pride 2013 and The Year in Queer.
