A Hint of Mint - Volume 71: LGBTQ Music From 1978 to 1979


Discotheques played an important part in the lives of gay men in the 1970s. It was our safe place, where we could celebrate who we are. It makes sense that much of the popular disco music was created by gays.

Punk rock was a reaction to the mainstream led by outcasts. It makes sense that many gays were drawn to punk.

This playlists consists of twenty songs, some disco, some punk, some neither, some performed by artists who fall somewhere under the LGBTQ umbrella, others with queer lyrical content. Performers include Joe Jackson, Mitch Ryder and Machine.
