A Great Big World: My Pride Playlist

A Great Big World: My Pride Playlist

Pride month, June, is a month to celebrate the beautiful LGBTQ community. And while we celebrate our equality, we also celebrate our differences. It’s a whole month to remember that in the end, we are all humans just trying to live the happiest life. We still have a long road ahead but the light is shining brighter than it ever has before. Here is a playlist of some music we love that can help set the mood for the month.

* * *

Greg Holden, “Boys in the Street”
This one is from our dear friend Greg and hits you in the stomach every time.

Janelle Monae, “Make Me Feel”
Janelle’s coming out as pansexual has helped further the conversation and bring more awareness to the LGBTQ community. We love who we love.

Madonna, “Vogue”
I mean…Madonna…

Hailee Steinfeld, “Love Myself”
Preach! Gonna love myself, no I don’t need anybody else. Truth.

A Great Big World, “Younger”
This was a song we wrote reminiscing about our younger days and how free we used to feel when we were kids.

Mika, “Grace Kelly”
Mika’s fearlessness is so infectious. And his melodies are so sticky. Love this.

Lady Gaga, “Just Dance”
You cannot not dance to this one. This should be on every Pride playlist ever.

Beyoncé, “Love on Top”
We can’t have a playlist without the Queen B.

Diana Ross, “I’m Coming Out”
Come out! There is no one on this earth like you. No need to be anyone else but YOU. This song celebrates that, and we love it.

A Great Big World, “Everyone is Gay”
We wrote this for our friends at everyoneisgay.com and for anyone who was confused or scared of their sexuality. You are amazing and there’s no need to hide it!

Jessie J, “Domino”
When you hear Jessie J’s voice, you think, ‘No way that’s real.’ And then you see her live, and your jaw is on the floor the whole time. This song had to be on this playlist.

Christina Aguilera, “Beautiful”
The things we tend to be the most insecure about are the most unique and amazing qualities about ourselves. This song reminds us of this and helps us find the guts to be vulnerable and show the world how beautiful we are.

Natasha Bedingfield, “Unwritten”
‘Live your life with arms wide open.’ Unwritten is the ultimate pride playlist song. Love love love the sentiment. Xo.
