The Daily Gamecock

Playlist: Celebrate with pride

In honor of The Daily Gamecock's first LGBTQIA+ focused print edition, we have compiled a list of prideful tunes gathered directly from drag performers in Columbia.

Featuring eclectic, uplifting songs from a variety of allied and LGBTQIA+ aligned artists, this selection of music represents the diversity of the community itself. While some songs included are celebratory in general, others are ones performed by local drag personalities or reflect specific struggles faced by members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Don't be afraid to dance around, sing out loud and be proud when you take a listen.
