We are just about to head into a Pride weekend in the Twin Cities that is going to look much different than years past.

From tcpride.org:

"The Pride movement started when the LGBTQ+ community said enough is enough. We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, and we must take action in the fight against racism in our communities. We do not feel a celebratory Pride Parade is appropriate at this time, and the inclusivity of all community members will be the focus of our events moving forward."

Since we won't see the traditional (or even virtual) parades and celebrations this weekend, we're going to flood our airwaves with Pride-themed music, requests and programming and we'd like to start with today's 9:30 Coffee Break. And specifically, let's put a spotlight on LGBTQ+ artists.

For today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what LGBTQ+ artists would you like to hear?
