It’s my great privilege to be able to celebrate Pride Month with another special edition of M Magazine, and to provide a platform for key LGBTQ+ voices in the business to share their stories.
Pride Month was created to commemorate the events of Stonewall and it’s crucial to recognise that those who identify as LGBTQ+ still face widespread discrimination, even in a music industry seemingly as inclusive and progressive as that in the UK.
LGBTQ+ artists have shaped, and continue to shape, the music and pop culture we know today. We must ensure that the spectrum of diversity that individuality brings to the industry is given the respect it deserves if it’s to continue to enrich us all.
It’s our duty to provide creators with the space to be themselves, freely.
