6 Lesbian Artists Who Aren’t Indigo Girls To Listen To On Lesbian Visibility Day

by Emily Lauletta

Happy Lesbian Visibility Day! In honor of today (and the entirety of Lesbian Visibility Week) here are 6 lesbian musicians that we think deserve to be more visible!


Fanny was the first all-female rock band to release an album on a major label. Also, it just so happens that two of Fanny’s members — June Millington and the drummer Alice de Buhr — are lesbians. A documentary titled Fanny: The Right to Rock came out in 2021, and discusses the h1istory of the band. After dealing with tons of sexism in the music industry, Fanny still became a household name for many rock and roll fans. If you’re looking to listen to some rock music but don’t want to stick to the very male, very white artists that have been deemed to be “the classics”, give Fanny a try! Their 1972 album Fanny Hill is nothing short of a masterpiece. It makes sense as to why they’ve collected fans such as David Bowie and Bonnie Rait over the years.

Nikki Glaspie

Iconic lesbian drummer ​​Nikki Glaspie has played with countless iconic artists, including Chaka Khan, George Michael, and Beyoncé. Impressively, Yamaha named her one of the best drummers out there today. The Berklee College of Music alum also leads a jazz/funk trio called The Nth Power. Their 2021 album Reverence features complex and melodic instrumentals that make this album the perfect listen for a rainy summer day. 

The Blow

The Blow is an electro-pop duo made up of girlfriends Khaela Maricich and Melissa Dyne. Though many music publications have placed them into the pop category, the band prides itself on their ability to blend genres. If you’re looking to get into experimental music, The Blow is a great band to start with, as well as a great way to support lesbian artists! Their cover of 10cc’s “I’m Not in Love” is a must-add to your classic rock playlist. Their 2017 album Brand New Abyss is another great place to hop on board to their hypnotizing (and delightfully weird) discography.


Fun fact about Feloni: She was the first “out” rap artist to release a hip-hop album. The album in question is called A Woman’s Revenge, and it centers on the lesbian perspective. The Detroit rapper is still making music today, too! You can hear some of her latest singles on your streaming platform of choice. Her 2022 single “Know You Better” is proof that she’s a voice in rap that demands your attention.

Peach PRC

With her hot pink aesthetic and bubble-gum pop sound, Peach PRC is an artist you need on your radar for the days you need to pick me up. Peach has been growing her TikTok presence for many years now, and you might even recognize her song “God Is A Freak” which went viral at the beginning of 2022. Peach’s TikTok success even landed her a record contract with Republic. We can’t wait to see what bangers she gifts us next!

Flor Amargo

Flor Amargo is a non-binary Mexican singer. Amargo studied classical piano at the National Conservatory of Music, and their classical training mixed with their own unique musical perspective makes their music so fun to listen to. Their 2019 song “Tiempo” features a delightful brass band that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Amargo is also a music therapist, and some of their songs are so wonderful they feel like therapy all on their own.

Celebrate Lesbian Visibility Week by adding one (or all!) of these artists to your monthly playlist. Though today might be a special day, they deserve your streams all year.
