June is not just a month for people to pull out novelty rainbow flags and have an excuse to down multi-colored Jello shots. Pride month is celebration of the LGBTQ+ community and the accomplishments that have been made, acknowledgement of the continuous struggle that the community faces, and remembrance for those who lost their lives during the fight for freedom and equality. Pride month is a time for allies and the LGBTQ+ community to come together and what better way to celebrate than with hip hop? This past weekend Pride was celebrated in major cities from NYC to Chicago. From CupcakKe to Mister Wallace we have found ten songs from LGBTQ+ hip hop artists and allies to get you feeling the Pride spirit all year long, and check out scenes from Chicago’s Pride Parade below via Make Stuff Media!
