It’s about that time to refresh Queer Necessities, my monthly LGBTQ-focused playlist where I catch you up on the latest releases by rising queer talent and fierce allies.
The cover star for July is up-and-coming singer-songwriter Brian León in celebration of the upcoming release of their debut EP, Morning Sun, slated for release later this year.
It marks Brian‘s first official release in nearly two years since their debut release “Don’t Leave.” The lead single, “Wine Stained Shirt,” from the Chicano crooner finds him singing with an awareness and vulnerability following a destructive relationship that left him feeling intoxicated and lost. With passion and immersive production, this latest single takes you deeper into his world of romance and melancholy.
There’s plenty more around the corner from where “Wine Stained Shirt” came from so get familiar now if you haven’t already! This month’s selections also include new singles from Hayden Scott, Gia Woods, Mike Taveira, Jodie Harsh, Mel Incarnate, Macy Rodman, Shy Lennox, Alewya and much more!
