Queer Music Heritage is a unique initiative that encompasses both a radio show and a website, dedicated to the preservation and celebration of the rich musical heritage of the LGBT community. Since its launch in January 2000, our project has grown into a vital resource for anyone interested in the history and culture of LGBT music.

Our Mission

At Queer Music Heritage, our mission is to document, preserve, and share the stories and sounds that define our community’s musical landscape. We believe that music is a powerful medium that not only entertains but also educates and inspires. By highlighting the contributions of LGBT artists, we aim to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of our cultural legacy.

A Journey Through Time

From the earliest recordings of queer artists to the latest hits by contemporary LGBT musicians, our archives offer a comprehensive look at the evolution of LGBT music. Each episode of our radio show features curated playlists that span multiple genres and eras, providing listeners with a diverse auditory experience. Our website complements these broadcasts with additional resources, including detailed articles, artist biographies, and album reviews.

Why We Started

The inspiration for Queer Music Heritage came from a passion for music and a recognition of the need to preserve the unique contributions of LGBT artists. Historically, many queer musicians faced significant challenges and discrimination, often leading to their work being overlooked or marginalized. By creating this platform, we aim to give these artists the recognition they deserve and ensure that their contributions are remembered and celebrated.
