15 Queer Black Music Artists Who Are Proudly Living Their Truth
Huffington Post - 8 months
There has to be some significance in the fact that June is the month to honor both the LGBTQ community and black music.    As festivals are being held throughout the world this June in honor of LGBTQ Pride Month, homage is simultaneously being paid to black music pioneers in acknowledgement of Black Music Month.  While already facing the ever-present challenges inherent to blackness, a number of black musicians have still been gallant enough to claim sexual identities that could hamper their success.  So in honor of these black artists who are boldly standing in their truth, we’ve rounded up 15 musicians of color who are unapologetically here and queer.  1. iLoveMakonnen The Atlanta native who emboldened us to think clubbing on “Tuesday” was acceptable in 2014 performed a bolder act this January when he announced that he was gay.  Given the hip-hop community’s reputation of homophobia, which is particularly geared towards gay men, iLoveMakkonen’s decision to come o...

Before fans of the beloved drama cry foul, protective of the legacy of the TV series that closely examined the drug-ridden streets of Baltimore, it should be noted that the musical is all in good humor, courtesy of the folks at Funny or Die. The parody managed to recruit nearly half the original cast, including Larry Gilliard Jr. (D'Angelo Barksdale), Felicia Pearson (Snoop), Andre Royo (Bubbles), Sonja Sohn (Kima) and Michael K.

In the four-minute clip, they manage to turn the gritty street tales into something more family-friendly and tease the musical's cheery songs such as "Omar's Comin,' " "It's All in the Game" and a sad ballad, "I'm Just a Burner," told from the point of view of the prepaid cellphones used by drug dealers.
