Taylor Henderson

WerQ: A collection of the latest LGBTQ (and LGBTQ-adjacent) music of 2017. Updated Fridays, for your convenience.

1. Hurry Up - Superfruit

Scott and Mitch are sick of waiting for the one and decide to try speed dating in their latest music video.

2. Good Old Days - Macklemore, Kesha

Get lost in nostalgia for the good old days with Kesha and Macklemore.

3. Rainbow - Sia

Sia's new single was penned for the My Little Pony soundtrack, which somehow makes the aptly titled song an even better queer anthem. 

4. In My Way - Muna

Queer trio Muna attempts to define a romance without putting a label on the love. "When it unfurls/It’s a sick, sad world/But I’m your girl, even when I’m not your girl/I’m not afraid to say/I love you in my way."

5. Sexy Dirty Love - Demi Lovato

Demi's getting grown and sexy with a bold new single from her upcoming, Tell Me You Love Me, due next week.

6. Week Without You - Miley Cyrus

Miley clearly doesn't handle breakup well, even if it's hypothetical. "I know that I gave you my heart/But you stomped it to the ground/And that’s what's got me wondering what it’s like/To not have you around."

7. Don't Give Up - Maggie Szabo

Maggie Szabo begs trans youth not to give up on love in an inspiring and empowering music video. Szabo is donating part of the proceeds from "Don’t Give Up" to New York's Ali Forney Center to "protect LGBTQ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently."

8. Wreath - Perfume Genius

Perfume Genius frontman Mike Hadreas has Crohn's disease, and says this song represents his wishes to leave his body behind to exist freely, with a physical form or gender holding him down.

9. Ambiguous - Mia LJ

Unapologetically sexually fluid, Mia LJ sensually explores gender and experimentation in a drug-induced haze. 

10. Hillside Boys - Kim Petras 

Trans singer Kim Petras gets groovy with this 80s bubblegum pop dance track.

11. The Gate - Bjork

Bjork. Co-produced by Arca. Need any more explanation?
