🎧 The 2010s: Queer Goes Mainstream (All Songs Considered)

Listened The 2010s: Queer Goes Mainstream from All Songs Considered

On this episode of All Songs Considered, we look back on the way queer issues moved towards the center of the conversation during the 2010s. We talk about how decades of activism led up to this moment and how social media has helped foster safe spaces and access to information for young people across spectrums of gender and sexuality. We also discuss how LGBTQ musicians are helping reimagine pop sounds — from openly expressing queer desire to cyborgian shapeshifting — and question what the future of “mainstreaming” might hold for queer communities. — Marissa Lorusso
