With 12 previous CDs under her belt, it’s now becoming a regular thing to see a new one from the now 40-something diminutive Aussie every couple of years. With a highly positive public image, having survived a cancer bout, gone through a couple of difficult relationships and renewed her loyal gay fan base with a return to the iconic Sydney Lesbian and Gay Mardi Gras festival (only her sister Danni, can match her number of appearances at the same event), Kylie now returns to her pop roots after a delightful acoustic album a couple of years ago (“Better the devil you know” as a swing number was especially fun).
Jessica Cornish (stage-named ‘Jessie J’) has been known to rock the pop charts with her top 20’s hits. Her music is flavored with R&B and hip hop influences that echo through catchy baselines and upbeat lyrics, and though she has produced only two albums, both have skyrocketed to the top hits list in the UK in only a matter of weeks after their respective releases.
Wallis Bird’s latest single ‘Hardly hardly’ is released today fuelling anticipation for her eagerly awaited fourth studio album titled ‘Architect’ set for release on the 11th of April.

Melissa Etheridge found herself feeling outraged and deeply saddened by the treatment of Russian gay people. She channeled her emotions into her latest musical offering as she sings from her heart in support of LGBT people in Russia in her new video for ‘Uprising of Love’.
Lucy Spraggan is not your average singer-songwriter. She skillfully makes storytelling a part of her song writing and combines it with her own unique blend of wit put to the tune of her musical companion, her guitar.
Talented young artist Sonali’s second EP titled ‘Wake Up’ was my ‘sit down and revel in the music’ album today, and I wasn’t expecting what drifted gently into my ears, charming me completely with its beautiful siren-song quality. I expected something very ‘general pop’ with catchy hooks but little depth, yet what greeted my ears threw me in the best way.
Larissa Gargan, country music singer and out and proud lesbian is on the verge of launching a promising solo career. We spoke to Larissa about her two singles, sexuality, her band and of course country music.
Is Miley Cyrus a lesbian, is she bisexual, is she straight, or somewhere in between? Do you care? Why? And why do the press love to talk about this stuff?
Take Me To Church from the EP of the same name by Wicklow-born Hozier is making a lot of waves recently. I’m not terribly on top of the new music scene so I was blissfully oblivious of this until a few days ago.
At this year’s Last Night of the Proms, acclaimed American mezzo soprano Joyce DiDonato took to the podium to sing, dedicating her performance to her many gay friends, colleagues and supporters, and in particular, wants to highlight and speak out against the terrifying homophobia that is deepening in Putin’s Russia. Oh and the conductor was lesbian too. Woman power!
Robin Thicke reminds me of Amy Poehler’s character in Mean Girls- “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom.” He dresses like a used car salesman, dances like your dad and is insecure about his masculinity.
Country-inspired singer-songwriter pop is hardly new territory for queer female artists. Emerging artist Tylan follows firmly in the footsteps of country giant k.d. lang with her debut album, One True Thing.

Lesbians are everywhere, even on the opera stage. Shoegirl gives us the low down on cross-dressing, gender-bending and singing like an angel.
Yes, dear reader, we’re offering you the chance to ask Heather Peace anything. Anything at all. The actress-cum-singer-cum-’ere is coming to Ireland in March for one night only and wants to hear from her fans. So what do you want to ask her?
When I heard this news, I flailed wildly, unable to control my limbs or emotions. Wicked! In Ireland! One of the greatest musicals of our time! Here – In Dublin!
