While most official Pride parades have been canceled across the globe, alternative celebrations are more than alive and well this year—despite the lack of rainbow corporate pop-up tents. For many, Pride has marked a special remembrance of the radical history of the Stonewall riots, and how we came to celebrate their anniversary as a turning point in the queer liberation movement. This month has always been, and will always be, about rebellion, resilience, and, even in the face of adversity, the pride to be who you are. And sometimes, one of the best ways to embody this subversive spirit is through the boundless connector of music. From the classics to new school and the ally-friendly here is a Pride playlist that is sure to get you grooving however you choose to celebrate.
