LGBT Music

It Wasn’t Until The Late 1980S When Culture

The s are a fun time to look back on, especially when it comes to music.

Whether it’s pop, rock, or alternative, the s had it all! But there was one subgenre that was a bit more difficult to find: LGBT music. It wasn’t until the late s when Culture Club (led by Boy George) started to make waves that LGBT music was widely accepted.

Today, we want to take a look back at some of the most iconic LGBT songs of the s.

From “Karma Chameleon” to “It’s Raining Men”, these songs are still just as popular today as they were back then. Let’s get started!

First up is Culture Club’s “Karma Chameleon”.

This song was released in and quickly became a hit in both the LGBT and mainstream music scenes. The song’s message of acceptance was especially powerful for LGBT listeners who were often ostracized by society.

Next, we have Bronski Beat’s “Smalltown Boy”.

This song is about a gay youth who faces discrimination and abuse from his parents and peers. Despite the difficult subject matter, the song still managed to be a hit, showing that people were beginning to accept LGBT people and their stories.

Finally, there’s the Weather Girls’ “It’s Raining Men”.

This song was released in and was one of the first openly gay songs to become popular. It was the perfect anthem for the LGBT community, encouraging them to come out and be proud of who they are.

These are just a few of the LGBT songs that made a big impact in the s.
