The MetalSucks Totally Gay DOMA / Prop 8 Celebratory Metal Playlist!
Hooray! The United States Supreme Court made two landmark rulings yesterday, striking down the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8. These decisions certainly aren’t the be-all-end-all of gay rights in America, but they represent a huge step forward and clear the way for more positive legislation that allows Gay, Lesbian, Bi and Transgender Americans to live openly and enjoy the same benefits as everyone else.
In celebration, we’ve created a playlist just for you consisting completely of bands with metal musicians who have come out as LGBT. It’s a pretty rockin’ playlist if we do say so ourselves, although sadly it’s only 10 tracks long and doesn’t contain any musicians who identify as lesbian or bi. We’re sure there are more out there, and hopefully yesterday’s rulings contribute towards lifting the horrible culture of homophobia that surrounds the metal community.
