Compiled by friend of Dangerous Minds Elizabeth Veldon, and available as a free download from the net label Black Circle, Russia’s Full of Queers is a 29 track album designed to highlight the abuse of LGBT people’s rights currently being passed as law in several Russian cities. Elizabeth says:
This album is a response to proposed laws in Russia that would outlaw any discussion of homosexuality, bisexuality or transgenderism.
The artists involved gave their tracks free and in many cases produced work to a tight (24 hour) schedule.
There is a wide variety of styles here from Harsh Noise through weird Jazz Cut-Ups to Hip Hop and Ambient.
We only ask that you sign the online petition against these laws and pass the word on.
Alone our voices are tiny, when raised together we can change the world.
