This month, people throughout South Dakota are celebrating the culture and diversity of the LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit community through digital Pride events or socially distant gatherings across the state.
But you can’t have a proper celebration without music. That’s why the ACLU of South Dakota has created a #SoDakPride playlist on Spotify.
The playlist is a locally curated list of eclectic songs from LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit artists and allies from different eras and genres. Some are up-tempo tracks, some are ballads and others nod to empowerment and fighting back and include:
- “I’m Coming Out,” by Diana Ross
- “Y.M.C.A.” by the Village People
- “Rain on Me” by Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande
- “Same Love” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
- “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls
- “Express Yourself” by Madonna
- “Believe” by Cher
- “Cover Girl” by RuPaul
- “We Are Family” by Sister Sledge
- “Harleys in Hawaii” by Katy Perry
- “This is Me” by Keala Settle
