A Hint of Mint - Volume 72: LGBTQ Music From 1979 to 1980


In 1979, disco was at its peak. In 1980, a backlash, rooted in homophobia and racism, drove the music from the mainstream. Coinciding with disco's decline was the appearance of new wave music, which us weirdos took to quickly.

This playlists consists of twenty songs - disco, new wave, punk, neither - some performed by artists who fall somewhere under the LGBTQ umbrella, others with queer lyrical content. Performers include The B-52's, Prince and U2.
