Feliz Pride beibis! This orgullo szn we want to bring you another selection of LGBTQ identified artists who are making gorgeous sounds porque hay muchxs!!! Contrary to some publications that will crown a (as far as we know) straight cis dude a queer Latinx icon porque se pinta las uñas, we believe that *actually* queer and trans Latinx musicians deserve that shine. So aquí están, some amazing queer and trans artists for you to start digging into.
Featuring music by Albita, Linn Da Quebrada, Anaís Azul, Gina Chavez, Sailorfag and Elysia Crampton.
We’re running a summer sale! Our Cardi totes are only $15 (down from $20). And if you’ve been meaning to get a pin, they’re almost sold out! Grab one today.
