Hypeful About Gay Musicians 2008

Gay Indie Rock Chris Garneau Owen Pallett Final Fantasy Kele Okereke Bloc Party Ed Droste Grizzly Bear Dan Gillespie Sells The Feeling Patrick Wolf Rainbow Flag Pride Music Homosexual Homo Queer Hot

The month of June kicks off ginormous gay pride celebrations around the globe, which means it’s a great time for everyone to celebrate diversity, equality, and acceptance. Hypeful (not a site to miss a party) would once again like to help out the Pride festivities by offering up a collection of indie-tastic tunes by some of our favorite LGBT musicians!

The response to last year’s song collection was absolutely incredible! I sincerely hope you enjoy this year’s expanded batch of indie-centric gay tunes just as much. Hypeful wishes everyone a very happy and safe month of celebrating!
