Hello again inmates!

How are you all? Having a grand start to the month I hope. It’s finally June! It seems like that has come around really fast to be honest. It’s starting to feel summery already. It’ll be Halloween again before we know it. What’s that about the big red bloke? Saturn Claws? Never heard of him. Haha!

You know what else June means though right? Oh yes, indeed. It is Pride month! So it happens, pride month is the theme for todays writing music. I think the clue earlier on today was really quite obvious this time. But how could it not be about Pride month? The asylum has always believed that everyone deserves to lead the life they were bestowed the way they wish. So, all religions, sexualities, creeds and the like are welcome here. As long as nobody is getting hurt, love who you please my friends. I’m completely straight myself, but I will always stand by people of other sexual orientations. Love is universal and all that.

So, in keeping with todays theme, I am going to be sharing some lesser known artists that are of less represented groups. Whether that be gay and lesbian artists, trans artists or whatsoever else they identify as. Diversity is indeed on the rise thankfully, but it should still be noted that people of these groups are still maligned and misrepresented ofttimes in the media. I’m not a fan of that. There have been some amazing artists from the LGBT community over the year, too many to actually list here I’m afraid. I’m going to pick some of my favourites though and I hope you enjoy them too. Give them some love eh? That’s what Pride month is all about in the end.

Join me as we delve into the musical minds of LGBT artists the world over!

Hayley Kiyoko – Girls Like Girls

Shea Diamond – American Pie

MIKA – Grace Kelly

Keiynan Lonsdale – Rainbow Dragon

Adam Lambert – If I Had You

And there we have it!

How about those choices eh? I’m sorry, I just had to include Adam Lambert I’m afraid. I’m a big fan believe it or not! I hope that you give all of these musicians a try! I wanted to include a metal or rock band, but I realised a bit late that it’s probably reasonably rare that an entire band would be filled with LGBT peeps. So, as always I hope that you go and check these artists out and show them some love!

So, now for some social media spiel! The asylum has an account on Facebook, a page on Instagram and an account on Twitter. Go and follow them for clues for my poems a few hours ahead of posting. And as always, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-Fi page. Thanks for everything!

Happy Pride month and have a very crazy day inmates!
