A Hint Of Mint – Volume 78: LGBTQ Music From 1984 To 1985

In this installment, we finally wrap up 1984 and move into 1985, welcoming Bronski Beat into the fold. There are songs to dance to, songs to rock out to, and some to chill out to.

This playlist consists of twenty songs, most performed by artists who fall somewhere under the LGBTQ umbrella, a couple with queer lyrical content.

A Hint Of Mint – Volume 77: LGBTQ Music From 1984 (continued)

Nineteen eighty-four was a very queer year in music, so much so that the minty music of that year is spread out over three playlists. Was there something in the water in England that year? I think a better explanation is the activism that rose from the early year of the AIDS epidemic, a time when governments weren’t doing nearly enough to help those afflicted. Gay men and their allies took to the streets to demand attention. This increased visibility carried into the arts. Also, there was something in the water in England.

This playlist consists of twenty songs, some performed by artists who fall somewhere under the LGBTQ umbrella, others with queer lyrical content. Artists include Husker Du, k.d. lang and Dead or Alive.
