We all have those songs that are forever ingrained in our coming-of-age stories. Songs that gave us hope, played during our first kiss, made us feel fierce, or simply helped us understand ourselves a little bit better. This can be particularly true for LGBTQ+ artists.

Throughout the month of June, and only on PRIDE, LGBTQ+ artists are curating and sharing playlists that reflect their formative years—their Soundtracks of Pride

Following the release of a new album The Witches Made Me Do It and his latest single, "Gender Binary (Fuck You)", Ryan Cassata shared an eclectic playlist of music that impacted him, as well as relates to what's going on in the world right now.   

The transgender singer-songwriter's playlist includes tracks from Lil Nas X, Queen, The Strokes, Lizzo, and so much more. 

Previous Soundtracks of Pride: The Aces, pineappleCITI, Siena Liggins, J.Scott, ABISHA, CHAV, Alex the Astronaut, Lauren Phillips, Ruth Koleva, ALMA, Wafia, alextbh, Jamie Hannah

Some of the inspirations behind the playlist's creation was "to help educate people to support Black Lives Matter and acknowledge that the first pride was a riot," Cassata tells PRIDE.  

Cassata is also donating the revenue from his newest single as well as t-shirt sales to blacklivesmatter.com
