In the words of Noisey, "Little Richard’s traumatic black, queer childhood helped mold rock 'n' roll."

In connection with the latest SouthBound episode -- an interview with Josh Burford, Southern LGBTQ historian -- we present a collection of music from LGBTQ artists from the South. 

I had a lot of fun -- and learned a lot -- making this one. For a deep historical dive on LGBTQ music of all kinds, make sure to check out JD Doyle's work at http://www.queermusicheritage.com.

We'll do new playlists on off weeks between SouthBound episodes, which you can subscribe to on iTunesStitcher and NPR One.

Let us know which songs and sounds should fit in this mix: send a tweet to @tommytomlinson or @wfae, and use the hashtag #WFAESouthBound. You can also email us at tomlinsonwrites@gmail.com.
