My 10 Favorite LGBT+ Music Videos
The last weeks, I’ve covered some serious topics and received a lot of homophobic backlash on a cross-posted article (I will talk about that in the future), so I’ve decided to keep it light this week and cover topics that I am truly passionate about: Music and Visual Arts.
I will list the best queer music videos, excluding classic tunes and gay icons like David Bowie or Madonna. I chose between contemporary artists that many might not have heard of before. The songs themselves were equally as important as the accompanying music videos to score a high rank in this list. I also tried thinking about the messages that each of the pieces carry, but in the end, I went for what I am most passionate about. That means, you might find I have a tendency for electronic music with male vocals.
# 10 The xx – Say Something Loving
#7 Hozier – Take me to Church
#5 Josef Salvat – Hustler
Putting together this list I stumbled upon a lot of great material. As I was set on keeping it a Top 10, I also wanted to share other music videos I considered but didn’t make the final list.
