Song for the Weekend

I’m choosing two songs for the weekend this week. As it’s Pride week in London this week with the parade and festival taking place tomorrow it is important we remember why we do it. We do it to campaign for equal rights and to show the world that no matter what some people (Mr and Mrs Bachmann!) think, we are proud to be who we are.

The first song goes to Madonna. The ultimate gay icon who has been speaking out for LGBT rights for decades. The song I have chosen is not an anthem more of a rallying call for us to love each other. This is “Why’s it so hard?”

I’ve chosen Lady Gaga as my second song. This song which was number 1 around the world has broken boundaries by making people of all ages sing the lyrics “No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgender life…” Londoners and LGBT people around the world, take to the streets, be yourselves and show the world that you’re proud that you were born this way.
