Black gay pride events were a quintessential element during my upbringing. Queer friends met up with each other to celebrate our culture and diverse communities. Queer families showed up together and showed out while partying the night away. Yet, there was always a missing factor: Black queer music. Aside from popular bounce music artists such as Sissy Nobby, Big Freedia, Katey Red, and others, we did not have a huge Black LGBTQ+ playlist selection to choose from.

Thankfully, times have progressed, and we now have a wide range of melanated queer music artists to vibe to. Check out Tagg’s Ultimate Black Gay Pride Playlist highlighting some amazing LGBTQ+ artists from today’s music scene.
