My No on 8 mixtape playlist: Videos for queers to claim equality by

I was just invited to a mixtape dance party where everyone gets to pick 5 songs. Here’s my No on 8 Playlist. I’m needing a boost working for equality for all and this is where I’m getting it.

1. Rise Up – Parachute Club

I’ve got asoft spot in my heart for the tunes playing when I was coming out in the 80s. You can’t get get more 80s than this video.

We want freedom to love who we please/
Rise and feel your power…
spirit’s time has come

2. Patti Smith -Gloria

Maybe my favorite song of all time. Our souls will not be refused. One church must not write the CA Constitution.

3. Small Town Boy – Bronski Beat

Because I refuse to go back, not to my small town but to a time when I had no choice but to. Obama says you shouldn’t have to leave your town to get a job. You shouldn’t have to leave your town to have love or be married either.

4.Respect – Aretha Franklin<
“You’re runnin’ outta fools / and I ain’t lyin'”>
5.I Am What I Am – Gloria Gaynor

It isn’t about whether or not you like my marriage or my partner. It’s about having the same legal rights and opportunities to make our own joy or our own misery. Plus, this really is the gayest song of all time.&nbsp.

6. Pride – U2

A great anthem in the name of love. Freedom means freedom for everyone. No gay apartheid.

What would you add to the dance playlist?

7. Cheryl Lynn’s Got to Be Real which Youtube won’t let me embed. Have to dance to that one.
