Subject: ATTN: QUEERWADS!
Here's the story, homoglory.
I am currently taking submissions for a new project tentatively called Queer as Folk-Pop (Vol. 1)
The plan is to assemble a delicious buffet of singalongable queerfagdykebutchfemmetranny-centric lovejams for the pansy pop-addict in all of us.
Because don't tell me you're not sick of the same old compulsive heteroboticism harshing your tunebox. Sometimes we just wanna pine along to songs about relationships that look a little less like the ones in TV commercials, am I right?
This project aims to communicate to audiences of DIY folk/pop/whatever music that we're here, we're queer, and we dig handclaps. So if you or anyone you know has a ditty that is in any way queer-love/lust themed (interpret that whichever way you like), send it over to:
The album will be available for free download once compiled, and upon request I can also make hardcopies to send to contributors, who can then do whatever they want with them (gift, sell, frame, etc). It's a great way to get some headphone-play for your hot mess of a music project, and contribute to queer visibility in the nebulous DIY music scene too.
There are no guidelines regarding the form or content of submissions. It doesn't have to be a new or exclusive song; it can even be a cover, like for instance if I did a dyketastic version of "I Kissed A Girl" where I liked it because I'm a flaming sexual deviant. The options include everything under/over the rainbow, so use your imagination. I'll contact you in a few months if I've decided to use your submission for the final product.
This is going to be sublime. Tell your friends of all queer-like persuasions and let's pitch in to make something that sissies and spinsters alike can sing, snap, stomp and swoon along to for ages to come.
Queer Lovejams for the Win,
Meagan Day aka Wisdom Tooth
