June is LGBT Pride Month , and if you want to get into the spirit of things these songs might help.

I. I'm Bisexual- A Coming Out Song! - Dodie

Since Brenda Howard, the "Mother of Pride" who helped organised the first Pride march in New York City, was bisexual I thought I'd kick off with a song about bisexuality.

Dodie, aka English singer- songwriter and YouTuber Dorothy Miranda Clark, released this song in 2017. It's short and sweet and there are Skittles.

2. Rainbow Connections By Garfunkel and Oates.

Garfunkel and Oates (aka Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci) are better known for their comedy songs but they wrote this sincere love song for a friend's wedding. I recommend watching the video which tells the story with a cartoon full of adorable little animal people.

3. City Hall - Vienna Teng

Vienna Teng is an American singer-songwriter. City Hall is a beautiful ode to the legalisation of same sex marriage (or as we may as well call it now, just "marriage") in the USA.

4. Coming Out- The Official Song by Ally Hills

Singer Ally Hills (who can also be found on Bandcamp if you like her music) wrote this song for people who feel shy about coming out to send to their loved ones as a way to get the message across.

5. Warriors (The She-Ra and the Princesses of Power theme)

There's nothing in the lyrics to this song that explicitly references anything gay, but it's theme song to She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, a show which is full of gay, lesbian and bisexual characters. It might be possible for a TV show to be gayer, but I don't know how.

The song is performed by Aaliyah Rose, and is great for singing along to.
