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
