As the 88th Minnesota State legislature takes up the issue of same-sex marriage, we're building a playlist with artists who rock with pride -- help us out by making a suggestion or two in the comments below.
What do we mean by "rock with pride"? Well, we're looking for musicians or bands whose members self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer. We'd also put in artists who've aligned themselves with a pro-LGBTQ stance.
We're not looking to speculate or "out" anyone; rather, we're interested in creating a soundtrack based on fifty artists (or more!) that we'd be proud to be playing on The Current. (Think Stephen Merrit more so than Clay Aiken).

Here's what we've got so far, help us out!
