14 Queer Christmas Anthems To Fill You With Festive Cheer


Christmas time is QUEER! Glitter, tinsels, fairies: could there BE a queerer time of the year?!

For those of you looking for some quality, queer anthems this festive season, all your Christmases have, ahem, come at once.

In addition to some Xmas classics – think, Mariah and The Ronettes – we’ve included The Pansy Division’s glorious Have A Homo Christmas and Lady Gaga’s Christmas Tree, both of which are a definitive move away from the more traditional seasonal fayre and more focused on getting it on under the mistletoe, under the tree or, well, anywhere.

I was disappointed to discover the lack of Spotify presence for the brilliantly named band Venus Envy. The band released a Christmas album back in 1992 called I’ll Be A Homo For Christmas, featuring classics such as Lesbians We Have Heard On High, The Twelve Gays Of Christmas, which includes gifts such as a turkey baster, two dogs named Sappho, “…and a year of therapy”, and, my personal favourite, Silent Dyke. This album is well worth your hard earned coins.

Sia, who came out as bisexual in 2013, has released a Christmas album called Everyday Is Christmas. The album, which Sia said they completed in just two weeks, is a response to the lack of “good Christmas music”.
