A Hint of Mint - Volume 74: LGBTQ Music From 1981 to 1982


The British are coming! Not that they ever left, but the early eighties brought the U.S. pop charts another British invasion, this one queerer than the previous ones. Half of the twenty songs on this playlist come from UK artists, including new acts such as Soft Cell and Depeche Mode, plus some folks we've heard from on previous playlists in this series.

Also debuting in this edition is Luther Vandross. He didn't come out publicly during his lifetime, but that doesn't mean his place in queer music history should be left out.
