Music is a vehicle of self expression during Pride Month as well as year round where artists can share their stories of love, community and hardships within their sound for those of any background to listen and appreciate. This playlist does just that, encapsulating all that it means to celebrate Pride.
Being a fan of singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers is not just a pastime, but a lifestyle. The Bridgers-brand sad girl aesthetic runs deeper than her chosen brand of folksy-indie. The veins of her music are authentically self-aware, despairing and most importantly, authentically Phoebe. Her fans are equally if not more dedicated to the Phoebe way of life. The crowds flocking to her sold out concert at The Anthem on June 11 was a clear reflection of that.
